It’s be awhile since I put a strand together. I’m not much of a bead stringer, but I have had this strand of luscious lavender chalcedony for awhile, and it was hanging out next to some fun “sputniks” on the design desk, so, I had to do it!
As a bonus, because sometimes I can’t be TOO minimalist, I added one of those rare beryl crystals (featuring beautiful iron oxide inclusions) that I’ve been hoarding.
Then to match (sort of) these babies:
Because I dig opals, (literally, I dig ‘em out and play with them!) I pulled out my stash and made some pretty Miss Matched babies:
These ALMOST match! The opals are “split” from the same rock, but the kyanites wanna express their own rock personality, thus, technically, still “mis matched”.
The last pair in this batch are put together with a rare rock: goethite in amethyst. Really special and pretty, and good for your spiritual evolution. They are a triple threat with Australian opals, and orange kyanite blades (because there’s a theme going on here).
