I had these gorgeous multicolored tourmaline "fringes" with lots of cute sterling silver coils under each little sparkly bead laying around for months on my working table. They didn't work out in my original design as I envisioned, and I couldn't find a place for them for a while. Recently I went through my stash of Bali sterling silver beads and these saucer shaped beads with dots aroung the edges seemed very promising. They turned out perfect! And they have nothing in common with my original design, except for the fringes, of cause.
