Amazonite and Chrysoprase ladder charm bracelet.


About this design:

I made this bracelet using Ali's tutorial on making a ladder bracelet. A few of my friends had asked me to make them something so i picked stones that had qualities for each individual and added charms that had some meaning , so that it would be a more personal gift. I also made other bracelets using the same technique. One from red tigers eye which is for a male friend so i made it more masqueline, and one from Pink botswana agate and rhodolite, then another from Amazonite and sesame jasper. As you will see i used suede lace for two fo the designs rather than leather cord.

Components:

I used 2mm leather cord, some brown thread and 6mm Amozonite, and Chrysoprase beads, then some antique silver charms, from Lima of course :-)
