Pearls and Nuggets Challenge

I love participating in the challenges that Linda Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures hosts but this one has been an exercise in frustration.  I took the pictures using my iPhone and it took pulling my hair out to get them over to my computer so that I could upload them to this post. 

Lisa, as usual,sent along some real beauties though I didn't end up using them all.  In fact, I was so drawn to those incredible Amazonite nuggets that I concentrated on them.  I am sure that you will see the rest of them popping up in the future though the pearls are a bit too much on the yellow side of the scale for my tastes.

I had some Amazonite beads that went so perfectly with the nuggets in terms of color that they made their way into this creation as well as a beautiful pewter clasp that I had been hoarding saving for just the right occasion and some sterling filled beads.  I really think this was it.  What do you think?  This necklace is up for sale at Shaiha Designs.
