    I'm glad you like it. Ya know I found the same type of spinel beads but even larger...of course I was drooling but not willing to pay the "price" but I had so many design ideas in my head!

    COOOOL! I love it. Very Victorian.

    Did you know that Queen Victoria's engagement ring was a coiled snake with an emerald head?

    Quite the little goth was Queen Victoria.

    You've gotten me in trouble with my friends and I love it. I can't say for certain why but your post was a hit among my "coffee buds", there was a threat to facebook the expression on my face LOL. Btw I don't mind that Goth at all, and you are spot on to recognize the influence in my creations.

    Heheheheh! I was quite tickled when I found out about Queen Victoria's engagement ring. I'd read that her daughter-in-law, Princess Alexandra, had a coiled snake bangle that she wore all the time, and Queen Victoria thought it was creepy. So when I read that Queen Victoria had a coiled snake ring as an ENGAGEMENT ring, I thought it was a bit weird. Prince Albert had quite the jewelry design skills, so I'm not sure why he went with a coiled snake design.

    I'm also tickled that I got you in "trouble" with your friends. I can't even imagine the friendly jabbing they gave you. I'm glad you all got a good laugh out of it.

    This thread is amazing, so many beautiful creations everyone...but I must admit my fave so far is from one of the first postings, the ring with the love birds, so delicate and beautiful!

    I was waiting for Sarah of Kojima Pearl to write up my purchase of these colorful "pecans" at the latest Ruckus, when I spotted these delightful fish. Sarah says she spent hours looking through a small mountain of pearls to come up with this pair. As a March Pisces baby, these had to come home with me as well.
