                      ckrickett, please share the link with us once you are open for business. I love the black spinel tassel. I had plans for one but I forgot I only had a half strand, which would not work. They look great with the Tahitians.

                      Here is my latest. Apatite and pearl.

                      I also made a matching pendant for the first pair of earrings, to be strung on a long strand of matching garnets.. The plan was for a pair of shoulder duster earrings but I ran out of tiny pearls.
                      Hmmm, notice a trend? I think I have an excuse to go shopping. By the way, does anyone know of nice and tiny little drop pearls?

                            I agree with all. The apatite tassels are dreamy.
