Ooh, sparkly!

I tried as best I could to capture the amazing glow of these aqua chalcedony stones, and I think they turned out pretty good! 

I am one of those people who gets a new gadget and just starts using it straight out of the box, tossing the instruction manual aside as if it were simply extra padding for safe shipment.  I still have not opened my Nikon D80 camera manual, 2 years after purchase.  I think these photos are testimony to the saying, "practice makes perfect"...what do you think?  :)

This necklace, dubbed The Caribbean Necklace, is stunning.  Five gorgeous aqua chalcedony heart briolettes are formed into a flower shape using gold filled wire. These stones catch light in such amazing ways, they truly glow. I tried to capture them with my camera as best I could :) The pendant rests on fine 14K gold filled chain and closes with an S-shaped gold plated clasp. Total length is 17 inches and the pendant measures 1 and 1/4 inches.

I am happy to alter designs if I can, this particular necklace is a popular piece that I sell and would make perfect bridesmaid necklaces!
