Project Description:

I am often drawn to the meanings of color or the "power" of a stone, perhaps it is my Native American heritage. But Color does play an important role in our daily lives. We use it to code so many things, as to traffic lights to our holiday themes. Well I have been told more than once in my life that "red" is my color. Red, the color of love and respect as well as many other things. Enjoy this design in your color or mine!

Rating Finally a red necklace
 
I have a friend that needs a red necklace and I have tons of red pearls, but didn't know what to do with them. I love the different textures that is used in this necklace and the instructions make it so easy and fast to do. Thank you Auntie's
