    First one, you look great wearing that Second one ... WOW! I'd be tempted to make that center drop removable so it could be switched out as needed for an awesome pearl, and then back again for this great look!

    I especially love the combo of the little black spinel and the red spinel ... drop dead gorgeous.

    Thank You, I confess it is my favorite BS piece. I was going to do something similar with another anchor with Amethyst beads but after the punch of red spinel look, the purple just looked rather plain.

    Ooh, I really like the first piece, too!

    Men around here don't wear any interesting jewelry.

    Y'all are very kind to say such lovely things :-)
    I don't think my jewelry is terribly interesting because it is mostly black. Or purple and sometimes a combo of the two ( but more black than anything) although I have many gems the black and purple seem to be the major theme in jewelry form.

    On the contrary, BPDDC your creations are very interesting, and wearable by both men and women. It's not easy to walk the line of working with darker colors and always making them so different and appealing!

    BPDDC I love your spinel and pearl neckalce. This one looks fab on you. Did you let your beard grow to accentuate the spinel? LOL just kidding.

    I am in love with necklace #1. It looks amazing on you. While your colors may not be as varied, it allows the size and textures to be the star of the show.
