I made this with black agate and glass for the base. The colored beads are agates, dyed howlite, and glass. My fave flowers are pressed glass with black Swarovski crystals for centers. There's a total of 6 strands.
Try really hard to ignore my gigantic face.  Tongue



Anyways, I miss Texas and this was a little cure for some homesickness I've been feeling.

Your "gigantic face" looks pretty and it works well with the lovely necklace you're wearing.   Cheesy

I like it a lot!  I love how the colors pop against the black.  Very pretty!

Very nice.  The twisted strands are beautiful.  And from one misplaced Texan to another, I fell your pain.  I wish I could make something that awesome when I'm feeling homesick!
