Challenge Accepted!

as my daughter would say.

A friend gave me beads that her husband had purchased
while traveling and asked me to create some pieces
for her.

 African turq. trade beads, lapis, turq. from Instabul and 
some AMAZING tiger's eye beads.

The tiger's eye has such life.

I have had some time to play and have used the tiger's eye and the turquoise.

Some jasper. 

I really, really had fun with these. These were a stretch for me
and I am psyched for my friend to see the pieces I made for her.

And these are my favorites.
When she showed me these Ruby Sodalite rounds, I knew immediately 
what I was going to do. Love them.

I hope she likes what I have created so far.

I promise to share more finished pictures as I move through
my "project".
