Mystery Continues

When Coolmoon suggested varicite I thought we had it!  I was all psyched....looked at lots of images of varicite and gee.....I'm not sure. It would make sense that it's varicite as so much is found locally (I'm in Utah) but I just don't see the graininess.  Thanks Coolmoon...but I don't think we're there yet.     I have stopped working on the necklace as I want to see if I can find some matching beads when we're in Vegas on know, you get an idea as you're working on something and it makes you change the design.

I did finish a necklace last night, this one with some of my Rio Grande polymer beads. I'd been waiting for a lighter turquoise size 15 seed bead to arrive and it finally did yesterday so I made the extra components and completed the piece. This is the first time I've made my own polymer clasp and it's fun to have it all match.


  1. Wow, you just keep moving forward!! Love the matching clasp!! :)

  2. Maybe someone in Vegas would know what the stone is? Might be worth a try anyway. Whatever it is, it's really pretty. Good luck on the "quest"

  3. Beautiful work Mikki...great clasp...your creativity is endless!!!


  4. Is there a rock shop here in town? They would be able to identify that stone. I'll google rock shops in Vegas and maybe we can add it to the list of places to go.
