I made these recently, and really like how they turned out. Unfortunately, the photos don't really do them justice. =[

Very nice!  The moonstone piece is my favorite; I'm obsessed with it too, as well as its dark sister Labradorite. I've never thought of mixing RM with rose quartz, but I'll bet it's really gorgeous in real life.

I'm most impressed with your ability to get wire through the holes in stone chips.  In my experience, most chips have holes that are SO TINY that it's difficult to get anything through them at all!

Thanks everyone!

QueenofSwords, no kidding! I went through so many chips to find ones I could even string! It took me a couple hours, even though the deisign is pretty simple. =\

Milly, I don't know how much 3p is. I bought my moonstone chips on a strand for about $10, and that was enough to make that set (I actually bought like three strands of moonstone chips at $10 each, due to the fact they have tiny holes, like was said above). You would probably have to buy more than you think if you're going to be putting them on wire. I know you can find moonstone for cheaper than that, but generally they have a lot of black spots on them if you grab them at your local craft store.
