My favorite semi-precious stone is coral...I just love the color and natural texture. The bottom necklace has one single real turquoise bead just for a pop of color. I was inspired by some of the gorgeous earrings Hilary made to combine these two colors and I think it is so pretty.
Both of these bad boys are actually be for sale in our Etsy store here and here. As much as I love them (especially the top one) I just can't justify keeping them! I could already wear a different necklace every day for a month and still have some I haven't worn. It's a problem.
One can only have so much jewelry before it becomes excessive.
And these weren't even made with any of my giant bead haul from Michael's last weekend! I can't wait to finish unpacking my craft supplies and get back into the groove of making things again.
