Wasn't sure what seed beads to use for this stone. Thought of using just black seeds, but then wandering through a bead shop I came across these green and blue seeds and they match so well with this azurite malachite stone, that I decided to pepper them in the work....
One more stringing project and then back to beadweaving. I just love these red beads (I call them "red velvet") so I had to use them again. The silver flower pendant is handmade from the Karen Hill Tribe in northern Thailand. The flower clasp matched so well I just had to use it for this necklace.
Love this stone! The stone is called "Flower New Jade" and I just love the color mixtures in these stones.....
