Well, I recently bought a gorgeous focal from Sharleen at Shaterra Clay Studio on Etsy.  She does some really lovely work and the colors are very rich and vibrant.  The focal I bought was a dragonfly in teal and green and the word "Dream" stamped just under it.  I love it! I'm going to be adding it to my shop under the Perfect Imperfections listing (my Spina Bifida Awareness line).  You'll notice all the beads, except one, echo the colors in the focal.  That one bead, a dyed agate, is yellow for Spina Bifida and has it's own "imperfection" running through it.  A teal colored swirl.  I have plans to add a pair of earrings and possibly a bracelet.  If so, it'll be what's called a parure set. That is, a set of three items for decoration, more specifically jewelry.

Anyway, here are a few shots from my iPhone.  Enjoy.

...and dream big, my dears!

There are teeny, tiny faceted round crystals
accenting both ends of both types of beads.


  1. Pam,
    The necklace is very pretty and I like the little bit of yellow on the blue beads and the yellow died agate with the imperfection is a perfect bead to represent Spina Bifida.

  2. This is a beautiful necklace. Yes, the died agate is perfect. I love Shaterra's work. Her colors are so vivid - something not seen in all the stoneware and earthenware pieces.
