    That's a cheery strand! Is it the gssp strand you got at Ruckus two years ago?

    Amti, the strand I got at the Ruckus is a little bit deeper gold. I strung it with sunstones. This strand, and the blue akoyas, I got fairly recently from Kong's. I couldn't resist putting them next to each other, and taking a picture:

    Linda, the strand is beautiful! And I love how the silvery-blues play with the rich golden colors.

    Thank you, everyone! I got some nice akoyas from Kong's Pearl, and couldn't figure out how to string them. Then I got some Ethiopian opal beads, and that was that:

    Wow! The opals and Akoyas are genius. The sun stones are great with the goldens. This is amazingly beautiful stuff, Linda. I’m going to re-read your thread to find out if you’ve already written about what inspires you, because I’m dazzled!

    Do you visualize these combinations in your head, or buy strands you love willy-nilly, and then lay them together until you get a “that’s it!” moment?
