RAINBOW CAL SILICA CAB SET
This is my current favorite stone. Custom cut for me by Mischa, the beautiful middle stone gave me lots of colors to play with. I bezeled it with copper delicas crowned with a few real silver charlottes, andstuck with gold onyx, coral and turquoise gemstone beads to surround it and a swirl (a la Barbara Carroll, who I want to bead like when I grow up) of size 15 seed beads and finished with a plain copper edging. A humongous copper delica peyote bezel connects the chunky strap of turquoise, malachite, chrysocolla, coral and some gold stone I'm not sure about as well as goldstone and some long green beads I've had forever and am not sure about either. For the fringe, I used red jaspar cylinders at the bottom, turquoise cylinders, peridot, gold onyx, coral and goldstone gemstone beads and blue swarovskis with silver accent beads. The earrings use the same combinations and I found copper findings for the set. I wear it more than anything else and it gets more admiration than any of my other pieces. I have other stones so I can make commissions if someone actually ever decides to part with money to own one like it.
