These are from Emerald Hollow Mine in Hiddenite, NC. The rubies are more raspberry red than this photo shows, but still very lucious! The rose quartz have microfacets that make them look like they glow. The sodalite cubes are more royal blue than this shows, too.I am very pleased with this purchase! These labradorite beads are from JTV. I am pleased with them, too!
I have a shop page through facebook and Shopify. It’s also called “Karla Krafts.” It doesn’t get much traffic, and there have been order notification and payment processing problems, but I think, hope, that’s fixed.
The Lumiere paints have lots of shine, so I think I’ll finish these with a satin glaze.
Alicia and Katy shared my necklace on jtv.com/extra on Wednseday! The hashtag was heavymetal.
On a recent visit to see my grandchildren, I took along some wire, cutters and pliers. Peter James, age nearly nine, made me this “fringe” necklace.
He engineered the closure, too.
(The sticker is a reward from my granddaughter for completing a fairy puzzle while she was teaching. I was Pre-K Karla!!)
