The necklace!!

So, you look around the house to see if you have something
and you find that you don't
so what to put the necklace on to show it off.
a wine jug from
either Greece or Tuscany
of course!!!
and where to put it
when the light is awful
either too bright or too dark
on the Egyptian tray
that sits atop the chest
from Indonesia

(note to self....visit Ikea more often!)

so here is what i did with the beads
after several versions
this is how I strung them.

the beautiful pieces of Turquoise

and the fascinating Volcano beads
with the Silver

and to complete the International-ity
of it all
a Tibetan Pendant
that the husband
bought me a few Christmases ago
that never had a place.....
I love it!!!!!!

The black beads is really different, and makes the turcoise look so much more beautiful.

Truly beautiful, Marilyn! I loved the story of the "random act of kindness" you have posted recently and I love what you did with the stones. Wonderful combination of colors, materials and cultures. I would wear it every day!
