    Thanks everyone...this design had been living in my head for a while...I just loved the versatility of Tahitians...they go with so many different gemstones!

    I had a bit of time sourcing Aqua too, I also did not want to pay too much. I opted for cats eye aquas, which gave me color and also a bonus cats eye. The one great pearl I had was smaller than the aqua so I had to space them apart. I had a bunch circled tahitians that had a lovely bluish overtone but I did not quite like them with the smoothness of the beads. So I am keeping an eye out for rough faceted free forms.

    I've posted a couple of pics here somewhere before. The better cats eyes of course were sold off, but I kept a few not as stellar for my own personal jewelry.

    This is not black spinel but it is one of my favorite pieces. They are really long...I had a dream about them about a year ago, it took me sometime to find the right color pearl and lighter but still bright and sparkly Amethyst. They are true shoulder dusters. I don't work in 14kt gold yellow gold too often, but I did not like how rose gold looked.

    Wow!!!!! BPDDC, those are spectacular! I can just picture them swaying. They call for Lobe Wonder patches, though ...

    Those are gorgeous BPDDC! How long are they? They really look like a fun earring to wear. I love the lighter amethysts and their shapes are wonderful.

    Lobe Wonder patches (sold by Pattye on ETSY as well as other places) are support for ear lobes to prevent excessive pulling on the piercings when wearing heavier earrings - or larger studs.
