It's stones like this that make me wish I had unlimited money.
I found this gem a few weeks ago, on Balibagus' Etsy site. So stunning.
And, it's really fun when I can turn the stone into a pretty necklace for my Mom, as a gift for Mother's Day.
I'm calling the piece "Green with Envy," because, honestly, I'm tempted to keep it for myself. But Mom loves turquoise and lime green. So I used turquoise beads and swarvoski crystals to accent the matte turquoise AB seed bead embroidery. Subtle, so that the gemstone remains the focal. Well, until Mom puts it on, that is.
