Coming soon - red aventurine necklace!

Or at least, it's called red - it's really a warm orangy color, with subtle sparkles (from mica inclusions). It's very pretty, and fun to work with! I have several different shapes, so will be able to use this pretty stone in several pieces.

I've started with a 16" necklace, using the aventurine mixed with mother of pearl rounds - which have a both a lovely champagne and a creamy white color mixed. It's also embellished with cream pearls. I have just a few finishing touches to add, and it will be ready to list!

I'm also thinking of creating some earrings - not matching the necklace, but certainly coordinating - and perhaps an embellished pendant from the remaining donut shape. I've seen some pictures with turquiose mixed with this same red aventurine, and I'm eager to experiment with that color combination.

I promise, tonight! I'm so sore from my fall still, I can't sit for after I finished it, I couldn't bear to do more than take a hot bath. Ugh.
