This is one of those pieces I am having a hard time "unattaching to" (Despite the fact it has a really nice clasp- haha *jewelry jokes*...)...It took me sooooo much time to create a bezel with the irregular Lapis stone...Copper is hard to work with sometimes! (it takes a lot of heat!). I also made two rough copper and silver beads and ended with stringing the Lapis 10mm and 6mm beads to complete the piece. Lapis is soooo beauitful...love that rich blue. Lapis is the stone of royalty, rightly so! It also encourages attaining self knowledge and guidance.
