One is a teardrop side-drilled bead and the other is a smooth chunk with no drilling. I used smaller beads (garnet, onyx, hematite and others) to decorate. These are mostly freeform, I can’t say what exactly inspired me, I just went on with the wrapping until I was out of wire.
Mostly coral, but also some turquoise, coconut wood and other materials.
Available in the earrings section of my Etsy shop.
I bought about half a ton of agate slices during my holiday in August, about time I started using them.
I like the dark green and purple combo.
I couldn’t quite catch all the beauty of this stone on a photo, but I promise you, it shines on the whole surface, and the colours are a smooth gradient from yellowish green to almost turquoise. One of the most beautiful stones I’ve worked with.
I’ve got lots of turquoise beads, so most of the bracelets I’ve recently made includes some. It’s a great stone to work with, because there are very few other stones that don’t go with it. Most green, red, blue, brown and yellow do anyway. I’m experimenting with wire wrapping beads to use them as a focal piece. Also, trying to include some handmade hammered clasps and other elements every now and then.
The bracelets are available in my Etsy shop.
