Dreaming of Summer....Thinking of Watermelon

Yes, watermelon. I was reminded of it when I ran across this photo of a wonderful slice of Watermelon Tourmaline. So pink and juicy it looks good enough to eat. Except you wouldn't want to swallow that lovely little diamond in the center. This piece belongs to my good friend Cheryl, and is filled with a double strand of variegated pink and green tourmaline and freshwater pearls. A faceted barrel-shaped tourmaline and Rubino Oro lampwork round complete the dangle.
(Rubino Oro is the Italian name for the color of glass, which means simply gold pink, but doesn't it sound much neater in it's native Italian?)

This piece is my favorite necklace! I love the colors, the little diamond, the seed pearls, and the way it looks when I wear it (and I ALWAYS receive compliments). Everything about it pleases me, especially because my good friend Kathy made it!
Love, Cheryl
