The Vocal Focal Bead Swap

This month I have been involved with a Vocal Focal Bead Swap with Bonnie Coursolle  Bonnie matched us up with a partner and we exchanged a focal bead.  I was totally surprise to have Bonnie as my partner.  She sent me a fantastic Goddess focal bead by Louise Ingram

I searched my beads and found some 4mm Mother of Pearl and 6mm dark green kyanite.  I am thinking that these might work for a necklace but I want to add a touch of hematite to accent the moon she is holding.
Bonnie, Thank you so very much for this lovely Goddess!  I look forward to designing something extra special and worthy of her!
