This is a huge departure for me. Asymmetry. Color. Mixing cheapy materials (wood) with expensive stuff (silver).
Plus, get me using a stone I JUST BOUGHT instead of hoarding it. Also, this picture comes with a free view of my backyard. No purchase necessary.
Okay, so I've been hoarding these 4 silver beads practically since I first started making jewelry. I couldn't stand to have just one lonely one left over...so I used it for a dangle on the back.

I'm thinking I might need to adjust the front - take out a few of the wood beads. Or maybe not. I can't decide (another hallmark of being a Gemini).
By the way, I need a good name for this piece so if anyone has any great ideas, feel free to leave 'em in the comments or e-mail me. I'm usually pretty good at the names, but this one has me stumped. Right now it's just called "Green Wood." BORING.
Okay, that's it for today. Not sure if there will be a post tomorrow or not - I have to go to a funeral :-( A co-worker's mother passed away. I'll do my best to get the bead porn post done before I go, but if not, it will be there on Monday for sure.
