She only turns 75 once!

And that is why I've designed this very, VERY special gift! Yes, it took many hours and lots of love, but this beauty is a special gift for a special lady turning 3/4 of a century old!  Seriously... doesn't that sound so authoritative saying 3/4 of a century? LOL

The Focal was hand selected from my dear friend Juls Beads.  Literally the second she put this one up in shop, I was jumping up and down, squealing - gimme, gimme, gimme!!!  This stunning bead has an opal irridescent appearance dancing right through the middle of the bead.  And since Opal is October's birthstone... and the recipient (who hasn't yet gotten this lovely) LOVES opals... thus the perfect marriage!

I used a gorgeous mix of purples and amber beads to really make the opal quality pop, and yet stay neutral colored so she can wear it with anything.  Copper wire adds a warm glow and those round amethyst crytals... well I'll let their bling speak for themselves!

All in all, I know this piece is going to make the 75th birthday the very best she's ever had... and I know I don't have to worry about her seeing this on my blog today, because she was on the computer last Monday and it'll be at least another week before she "turns that thing on again." :)  Don't tell me you haven't heard somebody say that before! 

Hope your weekend is wonderful!  We'll be celebrating with bells on as it is also my sweetie's birthday!

Oh how super sweet! I wish I was the lucky recipient of that pretty! But not 75 and my b-day is November so it can't be me!
She will treasure it for sure

Thank you, thank you, thank you. The party is TODAY so I can't wait to see her reaction. Hopefully I'll be able to remember to have the camera out and ready to go! Then I'll report back tomorrow with the results! :)

I appreciate all of your compliments and friendships so very much. Y'all just made my day!

Your work must surely leave the world speechless...not just me - right?

Girl, you have done it again! Keep whispering to the beads. They like what you have to say!
