YOJ 2005 Week 25

Froggie, oh froggie, jumping from one lilypad to another... I could not resist using these very unusual dark green carved aquamarine beads (again) with natural clouded aquamarine nuggets. The contrast of the matte carved beads with the shiny, translucent light blue color reminds me of water and leaves. Very amphibian, water and earth. However, being both aquamarines, they come from the same source. Pretty philosophical if you care to dwell into that area...
