  • I have so many ideas for these beautiful beads. Please pick me, please pick me. All I can say is these would be so pretty with iridescent pink beads,

    I would definalely make a necklace and braclet. It would be a fantastic
    Colour for St. Patricks Day. Thank you. Xxx

  • I envision a line of jewelry called Emerald City, with pieces that tie into the characters and events in The Wizard of Oz…a bracelet of mostly green beads with small little red beads to represent the field of poppies, a spiky green necklace that the Wicked Witch would be proud to wear. Let’s not forget Toto, too–how about a dog collar style necklace with lots of emerald accents. So many possibilities.

  • Val H

    Simple pendant, multi strand necklace, right angle weave bracelet, and a few pretty earbobs.

  • Mary Beth

    I would love to make something very ‘viney” with lots of spirals and twists. Perhaps some clusters of purple grapes out of small amethysts tucked in. Then I would make a chunky necklace out of emerald green turquoise – with some jet black beads to set it off.
