Marbles


About this design:

I think these funky glass beads look like marbles. The pattern in the glass resembles the pattern in the bronzite. I kept the bronzite bracelet and earrings super simple so I can stack them with other brown pieces too.

Components:

LB: bronzite and silk ribbon Extra pictures to try to capture the patterns in the bronzite.

    You’ve been busy on your Christmas break making pretty things to wear. Those brown glass beads are really interesting. I didn’t see all the swirls until I clicked on the close-up.

    Love the glass beads and yes, they remind me too of root beer candy. The ribbon adds a nice detail on this simple design.
