Gayda got a great start on her design with the lovely rhodonite gemstone flower she found in my gemstone box. The bail was actually at the back which meant that the pendant sat in a pleasing manner amongst the purple hued cube beads in the front.

Hot pink and black really go well together. But in Gayda's case, the pink was much more subdued and would have been overpowered by sheer black. Yet Gayda needed some sort of colour contrast for the rest of her necklac, so her choice of hematite coloured glass beads were alternated clear glass crystals.

Perhaps I should have taken the photo of her necklace on Gayda for it was just perfect for her black, grey and white outfit she was wearing on the day she designed it.
