apple turquoise pendant
These last two beads are topaz and citrine. I used them in my latest project:
I had never used citrine before, but I decided I really like it. It has an interesting luster with almost a bluish cast, a lot like labradorite or moonstone. I think I'll start using it more often. In case you're curious the other two beads used in this necklace are amazonite (which Brian pronounces "amazin-ite!") and pearl. It's a two strand necklace that sits just past the base of my neck when it's on. Let me know what you think!
