    Personally I really like the ROSE with the jaspers, Linda. To my eye it plays well with the lighter tones in the beads and your fair coloring.

    Many jaspers from around the US, too! Where does this Desert Rose jasper originate?
    I found this Pattye:
    Desert sage jasper is found in the Three Fingers Butte collecting area in Oregon, USA. The area has been a well known collection for over 40 years. The jasper was named after its color and its similarity to the sage plants found in the area that it was mined. This jasper resembles the patterned skin of an elephant. It is mined in South Africa.

    I like the rose thread with the jasper...but you could also try to pick up on the darker grey shades to make the pinks pop. I love jasper...I think its an under appreciated stone.

    Thank you all! Now I have a stone called K2, named after the mountain in the area it was found:

    Very pretty K2 stones. I have never heard of them before either but those blue splashes are gorgeous.

    Some lovely freshwater pearls. I had to keep them in a box when I wasn't working on them because Oreo (the bad kitten!) kept dragging them around. She seems fascinated by certain strands of pearls, mostly the very colorful. But can cats see color very well?

    Very pretty freshwaters. I googled and cats can see some colors but not really well. Apparantly it's not important for them. My cats have stolen quite a few pearls, specially the ones that aren't finished. They want the tread and the needle. Sometimes they have stolen loose pearls as well, for bouncing or hunting. Ones the big cat stole a whole strand of ginormous ripples, not even colorful.
