Diana is my family’s “adopted” sister. She lives 5 houses away from us (4 from me actually), she was born 1 week after my middle sister Pam, and the 2 have been best friends practically since then. She is one of us. The closest thing to being a sister without actually being one. I usually give her gifts from The Pyramid Collection catalog, because of their unique qualities, their bit o’ magic and their pure coolness factor. But this time, I decided to make her a gift.
I had shown you these crystals in a post a week or so ago in a necklace that I had made for Julie. I had shown these crystals to Diana many moons ago when I had first bought them, and she loved them. I had wanted to make her something with them since then… but just never sat down to do it. Then I misplaced them.. and so on and so forth… But, I finally made it for her and I am happy to say that she loves it.
Her birthday is in August, hence the peridot colored beads. I used orange beads as well, because I liked the contrast with the green. It’s a little unexpected… kinda like Diana! I also used some clear glass beads to accentuate the quartz crystal. All of the components are from Fire Mountain Gems, with the exception of the crystal, which I had gotten at a bead show.
