About this design:

I had these beautiful green aventurine and green fire agate beads and they made me think of the beautiful leaves of spring and summer! So I tried to make a bracelet that was reminiscent of ferns, moss, and many other leaves and such. I so love green!

Components:

Green Aventurine, green fire agate, natural green 2mm leather, emerald nymo thread and a silver filigree button.

    Robin Gee, it takes some practice to keep it from tangling! The longer the thread, the slower I pull it through the beads, that way you can untangle as you pull. Pulling the thread slowly also keeps you from jerking a knot in it….I found this out the hard way. The more you do it..the more you get a feel for it!:)

    Absolutely stunning! Nice to see something so lovely that doesn’t involve chain, jumprings, and metal clasps. I’m excited to get back to a stitch and string type project. Great job!

    Adventurine has always seemed boring to me. That is up till now. Looks cool and fresh for a hot summer day.
