Rutilated Quartz . with Sapphires
Several weeks ago, I added a beautiful necklace to my etsy shop that featured a long briolette of rutilated quartz flanked by 2 colorless sapphires. It didn't last long. When I started to make another one, I discovered that none of my remaining colorless sapphires would fit on 26 ga wire. I don't stock 28 ga wire -- but that's a topic for another day.
What to do, what to do. Turning back to the sapphires, I spotted these raspberry colored beauties. Then I saw some peach, some watermelon and lemony sapphires. Problem solved! They all looked great with the crystal clear and black rutilated quartz. This raspberry adorned one is in my etsy shop.
