Happy Chinese New Year!

Spotlight on Preciosa Bicones/Rondells
Lena Gillespie described this amazing necklace focal as a cone.
So many crystal beads were turned into charms with headpins and skill!
We think Lena made a great choice to showcase it on a simple chain. We also love the ombre effect she achieved by selecting from Preciosa's wonderful color assortment; Tanzanite, Tanzanite AB, Light Sapphire, Light Sapphire AB, Crystal AB, Labradorite and Vitrail.
18ga Round Silver Plated wire added a touch of class to the design linked here.
We have a link to the Preciosa beads she used here.
