Chrysocolla Sparkle Gem by Lynn Shivers
Lynn found this gorgeous chrysocolla cabochon at a gem show in Colorado. I clutched it with peyote weave and added two rows of Swarovski crystals, the back row is a milky 2x blue and the front row is a smaller deep 2x blue zircon. The rope has eight of my beaded beads, picking up the colors of the chrysocolla, along with silver spacers, blue agate beads and green crystals, and blue zircon Swarovski crystals. The piece is 16 inches long with a 5 inch sterling silver extension. I truly am so happy with how this came out. Nature did a spectacular job with the colors of the cabochon and I tried to pick up these colors and add some sophistication. I just craved a necklace with these colors.
