Nothing but blue skies, is all I see...
I found the focal for this piece in the Sweet Creek near Metaline Falls, WA. It was just shiney and it sparkled and, to be honest, I though it was a gold nugget. Our resident gold panning expert said it might have some gold flake, but is definitely not solid.
This is the falls where I found this pebble. Isn't it gorgeous? This is the Lower Falls
and the upper falls...
This is actually pretty close to the spot where I actually picked up the pebble. It is right at the top of the top falls
I wrapped the stone in some sky blue matte Delicas (from Beyond Beads North in Spokane, I'm only in there twice a year, but they always remember me!)
The strap is the same matte light blue Delicas, along with gold lined clear Delicas in flat peyote stitch. I linked the sections with gold craft wire, a few giant seed beads (that came with a bead loom). Mailled a few mobius balls, added a handmade clasp and called it lovely.
Where is the most beautiful/unusual place you've found a focal?
