In case you are wondering what gemstones you are looking at, from left to right: On the bracelet bar - green aventurine, garnet, smoky quartz, labradorite, iolite, carnelian/orange jade. Pooled underneath the bracelet bar - tanzanite colored crystal, amethyst, white quartz, coral, tanzanite, teal seed beads, peacock colored mixed beads, blue labradorite.
Here is a closer look of the aventurine and garnet.
The art deco sparkly clasp - isn't it pretty?
Here is the amethyst 4 strand with a different clasp and different design.
While I love my signature bracelet, I also make other designs. I use toggle clasps, bar clasps and other kinds too. Just think of all the possibilities with all of the gemstones out there and all the colors of the rainbow.
Believe it or not, even with all of those, there are still some that I want to make. For instance, I have a smoky quartz bracelet with lighter stones, but I really want to make one out of darker beads. I made one of those darker ones for a customer and almost couldn't part with it. That was back in the day when I sold beaded jewelry. I also really want to make one out of peridot. The most recent one I made is the orange one in the first picture, made of carnelian and orange jade. I usually don't mix the stones, but these just worked so well together. So that's all for now on the jewelry front. I will have to showcase some of my necklaces soon.
Thanks for stopping by and Stay tuned for more creativity!
