|This pendant is actually very small, only a little over an inch across, |
with tiny faceted peridot peaking out here and there.
It was precious and sold quickly.

(Worth mentioning because most of my Etsy sales have been to friends and customers I had already.)

Conclusions to be drawn: (1) I gravitate toward a muted palate. (2) I tend to limit the kind and color of beads I'm working with. (3) I prefer oxidized silver to bright silver. (But now that I have a tumbler, I've discovered the beauty and utility of shiny oxidized silver, rather than just matte.) (4) I like freshwater pearls. And chalcedony. (5) I managed to get a lot of words into what is supposed to be a mostly photos post. So much for that bright idea.
