Components: Green agates, Irish waxed linen, pewter button, all LB. Again, the pewter seed beads are another source. I wish LB had them because they are perfect when you want a pewter look. I will share my source in a message if anyone is interested.


Blue Agates

I was trying to make a knotted bracelet with 7 strand Irish waxed linen but it turned out only one hole of all the holes in my double drilled...
Components: Dyed blue agate rounds, LB, Irish waxed linen, LB, pewter button, LB, and lovely pewter seed beads I wish were from LB but I can share my source if anyone wants to know. I love them for their look, their weight, and their hole size. Please also check out LB's nickel colored seed beads as they are a very similar color which also works very well for these. I happened to want the duller pewter for this design but I use the nickel ones a lot, too.

more teasers :)

These first 4 are strung on elastic which I knot inside the silver seed beads and glue there. The last 3 are more of the first set of teasers.
Components: Gemstones are Amazonite and Aventurine from LB and Labradorite and BC Jade from my stash. Crystals and seed beads are from LB and so is the elastic (I believe it is 1mm) The last 3 are Brazil agate with Rhodocrosite, golden obsidian with crystals, and carnelian with extra seed beads. In the first set I used pyrite with the golden obsidian and that combo is nearly perfect. :)


A teaser for the challenge...

7 of my 2 hole gemstone rectangle bracelets. I use seed beads, small gemstones, or crystals as spacers to make them bend nicely and so I don't...
Components: As many as possible of these parts are from LB. The rectangles are carnelian, golden obsidian, Noreena jasper, Rose Quartz, Brioche Agate, and Brazil agate.
