Over time, I have assembled quite a lot of random rescue jewellery. I find myself particularly drawn to semi- precious gemstones of any kind, a lot more than glitter and bling. There is just something about them that appeals to me.
So, a few days ago I gathered my supplies and got to work. Okay, there might have been a little trip to the bead shop beforehand, to acquire some shamelessly overpriced bits and pieces, but in order not to re-open the wound this has left on The Man, I shall not elaborate on this too much. Lets just say, he suffered quietly and managed not to cry while I was comparing shades of green.
The green one; strung on stretchy cord to allow for a bit of flexibility,with moss agate, crystals, unakite, glass and wooden beads plus tibetan silver accents around an off- center wooden focal.
The second lot features a little idea of mine, feel free to nick and adapt it. Say hello to the embroidery thread- covered washer! (loadsa wrapping, but so worth it!)
Tourmaline, amethyst, tibetan silver, glass, wood, lampwork and crystal on stretchy cord.
