Hi Jelveh:
That is one gorgeous focal bead!
My favorite jewelry component is any kind of large, unique toggle.

hi jelveh, fantabulous bead; how do you do that? i'm going to have to agree with ginny; a nice substantial sterling silver toggle clasp always turns me on! doesn't take much these days. kind regards, lisa d., portland, oregon

Hi Jelveh,

My favorite component is a charm. I love to have two that dangle and make music when there is movement.

Hi Jelveh,
AMAZING bead !!! My favorite component has to be something handmade, whether it be a professionally made bead such as yours, or the simple focal components I make out of natural objects like the rocks I find and polish myself, or beautiful flowers that I dry in a flower prress, or sea shells, etc.

namaste,

To Live For Focal! I think it has to be a toggle that works, but also love good bali silver for accents!

Hi Jelveh,
Beautiful bead...love it!!! My finding "quest" of the moment is to use large, unique sterling silver End Cones paired with sterling chain to "finish" my necklaces. Such a beautiful way to finish off a necklace:o)
Thanks,
Sandi from TX

I'm not a jewelry maker but I just had to stop in and say that bead is gorgeous! I'm in awe that people can make things like that! ::runs back to sewing machine::

Right now my favourite component is a simple black cord, because it's so versatile.

I love how the blue just blends in with the earth tones. This would be gorgeous on a silver chain with a large toggle clasp. And yes you have to have charms on each side. Thanks Carolyn from Florida

Hiii Honey,
That bead is so beautiful and inspiring. :)I don't know if I am late to enter the contest but my favorite components are little, flat bali silver beads with flower designs on them. Remember the ones we bought from the Silver Shop in Istanbul? Yee, I know you bought tones of them but you know which ones I mean do you? :)
Loves and hugs from Istanbul.

Hi all,
Thanks for entering & thanks for all the great answers, keep them coming as the contest is still on, until the next update which should be soon this week, Tuesday I think...
yes I do wish I was in Istanbul, shopping for silver with you Ilknur, in fact to all of you, I suggest a trip to Turkey, the silver is just the icing on the cake that is Turkey...
