Rhodonite Necklace

I've gone stone crazy. Again. This is Rhodonite - a particularly vivid example with striking pinks, mauves & greens. I had to bid pretty high to get this particular piece - but it was worth it. Reminds me of a Japanese landscape painting. The bezel beads are size 8, 11 & 15, the necklace beads are sterling & Bali silver, jet firepolished and of course, Rhodonite.

My spending sins continue: Rhodonite, Dream Agate, Dragon's Vein Agate, Landscape Jaspers, Fire Agate. I'll never catch up with myself - and on top of all that, my brass cuff blanks have arrived from Designer's Findings and are sending "bead me now" signals from the drawer.

I'm putting the push on (myself) to start selling. I've found a store here with the right price range and I'm also hoping to set up a website for the fall. Meanwhile, I'm trying to produce lots of stock ahead of time.

Yikes and yikes again! That is very beautiful, I can understand why your bidding went a little high.
Well done on selling and I loko forward to the website too.

Hi Christina. I watched the auction on that stone like my very life depended on it! What an obsessive!
