I thought it would be an easy challenge to just pick few a few beads that have been sitting too long and make something. Boy was I ever naive. There is a reason I haven’t used these beads. They aren’t ready. They haven’t spoken to me yet.
Ok time to get to work. I looked at a strand of Blond Onyx that I purchased from an Afghan vendor. He always has the most beautiful stones, not to mention that I covet his Roman Glass but that is a story for another time.
These stones are so smooth and beautiful. The more you handle them the smoother they become. They remind me of river rocks. i paired them with some beautiful sea green agates and copper.
