The rules of this bead exchange require the participants to use a focal, clasp and some of the beads in the design of the necklace that were sent. This is the focal that I received and it determined the style of my design. It had to be southwestern.
This is the 24 inch southwest style necklace that I designed. I love the blues in the crazy blue lace agate and the earthy desert colors of the beige and brown agate with it. The blues remind me of the popular gemstone turquoise found in the southwest.
