Yes, more ribbon pieces...you can probably guess it's one of my favorites to work with because it's lightweight and really pretty. Here are two...
Components: Black and Purple ribbon bracelet: clay beads, glass beads, amphibole beads, lava beads, black obsidian beads, ribbon
Purple and Green ribbon bracelet: clay beads, assorted crystal beads (LB), cloisonne beads, Olive Fire Agate (LB), assorted glass beads, composite rose beads, aventurine, Azurite/Quartz/Pyrite beads (aka mystery stone bead), ribbon
I've included a few photos of the 'mystery' beads that my Mom once gave me and I haven't been able to identify, they aren't in focus, but the photos are meant to be more for colors since the focused photos had too much shine. The colors are cobalt blue (similar to azurite or lapis), specks of pyrite, and then the greenish yellow)---I'm now thinking maybe chrysocolla? As I tell my students on a regular basis color is the worse way to id a mineral, but in beads that's the primary clue. Looking at the beads the colors appear to be natural not dyed. Rereading this I can't help but say jokingly 'no I'm not a scientist or geologist in the slightest...no over thinking/analysis tendencies at all.' lol ;) Thanks for any ideas, I appreciate them.
