    Been trying to find new ways of combining them. I also just sort found a fondness for Red Spinel combined with Black Spinel, got a project in the pipeline. I like the thinner bead necklaces for dress shirts worn with open collars. Esp when having to go out for a professional yet casual Business dinner or drinks.

    I just had a conversation on line with a young man interested in a black spinel and pearl piece I made recently...he was concerned that the small stones might seem too feminine. I assured him they are not, and that fashion knows no boundaries! Well dressed is well dressed, regardless of the gender.

    Love those pieces BPDC! I too love Black Spinel and the look of the teeny tiny ones with pearls...tho I hate threading them lol I was looking at a strand in a Jewellery store window and they had used these weeeeeeeny teeeeeeeeny little black crimps. Not oxidised silver. They got a bit vague when I asked about them and I realised that they hadn't made the pieces and had bought them in and had no idea what the crimps were made of.. I would love to find some 2mm black tornado like crimps if anyone knows where they are.

    Katbran, I haven't seen anything like that...however, I would imagine that you could rhodium plate sterling or white gold crimps for that look. I would think that would be fairly simple to do.
