Lace Agate


I got this stone so long ago, I can't remember what it is, but I'm thinking it's a lace agate or some such....I bezeled it with size 15's and am adding a bracelet in delicas....when it's done the agate will be the top of the clasp as well as the focal point of the bracelet.
This is all I got done after two days beading with a friend...we had to spend lots of time talking and telling jokes and laughing....took a little time away from our beading but I consider it time very well spent! thanks, gail!

That is a really pretty stone! And, the colour of the seed beads matches perfectly!

Oh your so right, beading with a friend or friends is always so much fun. I will never forget one of my friends and I where stitching away one evening, and neither of us had said anything for quite some time.
She said," You know what the sign of a good friend really is?" Before I could even think of an answer she said," When you can sit in the same room with them for hours on end, never say a word, and still enjoy their company.". I never forgot that, it was so profound.
Oh and once again, your work is so beautiful, please post a finished pic.

I love the idea of using the stone as part of the clasp! That's a great id.ea!
I also wanted to mention that the Laramar piece is so great! I'm amazed you didn't use it in a piece of jewellery. I got some larimar stones when I was in the D.R. It's on my WISP to get something done with them.
cheers, denise
