I made this a while back, but very likely this year: I have other projects completely documented for the past several months, and I don't think it's older than a few months.
9-1/8" overall; focal is 25mm/1" rhinestone rondell, bicycle shraeder valve lock nut, base metal, pearl, speckled ceramic bead, cat's eye, czech glass, pixies, hematite, grongroo. Photographed 16mar20
The bead is a very pale blue
(or possibly alexandrite) transparent with a super-fine layer of a plum shard—one so thin that not only is it effectively transparent silver purple, it has some tinges of blue as well, giving a subtle iridescence.
To pick up on this subtle effect, I strung the piece with a purplish blue freshwater pearl, and two grey pixie dust beads, as well as seed beads with iridescent qualities. —I must've done something right, because f2tE immediately claimed it.
We tested it with a fluorescent light. It's 050 cobalt.
