Tiger Eye and Pearls


About this design:

My last pearl bracelet sold so I made another one only this time I combined it with Tiger Eye. Originally I had wanted to make a Tiger Eye bracelet but everything I tried looked too dull and flat. After about two weeks I took it apart and started again. I like this version better.

Components:

12 and 24 gauge copper wire, pearls, Czech glass, seed beads

    Wow,LRC…that’s a lot of work. As always,your bracelet is outstanding. I have to agree about Tiger Eye. It’s an intersting stone,but can look a little flat on it’s own. This one is very soft,and still makes a statement. I like the little pop of violet in the pearls.

    Well, you know I love this, don’t you Nancy?!
    As for “hopping to it”. I finished one but my computer skills (none) prevent me from posting it. :-|

    Mary, your computer skills or lack there of can’t be worse than mine. If my computer wasn’t smart and my son wasn’t handy I’d be in deep kimchee! Anyone got a crank telephone? I know how to operate one of them. :D
