I made 2 necklaces today and hope to finish two more tonight. I am entering a couple of design contests so any critiques would be appreciated. I went shopping earlier today and picked up 6 Botswana Agate centerpiece beads, and am trying to focus on them for the time being.
This first one has a Botswana centerpiece with Amber and Golden Jade (in 2 sizes). I am a big fan of Golden Jade. The coloring variations from bead to bead are fantastic.
This second necklace has the Botswana centerpiece with Wooden Agate (in 2 sizes) and Black Agate. The Black Agate beads are the 8mm ones. I really like the color variations within the Botswana Agate, they can go with most any color.
Later tonight I plan on trying to make one with various sizes and colors of Tourmaline and another with Lavender Florite. If I get them done, I will post later. Who knows if they will get done tonight. Like I said earlier any critique (good or bad) is welcome.
