    I think Pattye has had a few pearl/Oregon sunstone combos for sale on her website in the past? No, sadly, I don't have any such. I'm sure Pattye will come up with something wonderful to do with these little gems

      Yes, the pearls are definitely creamy. I have some nicely faceted carnelian, will check it out along with sunstone! Strung on 20# fishing line for washing in Dr. Bronner's unscented castile soap. I leave about 4 inches of slack so if pearls are really dirty I can use a soft brush on them, however, these weren't too bad. Note the pile of discards; I see I missed a few that are very dull on one side.

      Will have something made up by Ruckus, if not sooner. Other priorities at the moment! Thank you all for the suggestions! With the added gemstones, a rope in the 60+ inches would be fun.

      Blaire, what color were your friend's sunstones? I can imagine how glorious her necklace is!

        What about Hessionite ? It's lovely autumn shades of amber and yellowy oranges etc. Be very pretty with cream I think.

          They were clear and slightly colored by Schiller, the copper inclusions that add orangey adventuresence. Next time I run into her wearing it, I will take a photo for you. They are like this only very gemmy and better cuts: https://www.etsy.com/listing/5602766...one-beads-with

            My thoughts were something in the citrine/lemon quartz/ baltic amber area but that Oregon Sunstone really knocked my socks off! I am not normally a lover of anything orange either. Would love to see it done with the sunstone.

                Thank you, Joaz. Right now these are tucked in a box to finish later; my 20 yr old grandson moved into my studio, so many projects have been packed away! He'll move back on the college campus once it's open. Classes online for now and fortunately he has a job cooking at a restaurant.
