Rings of Water


About this design:

I bought the Unicorne rings on "lampwork" day. I bought these amazonite beads because they were the perfect color, just a bit deeper and darker than the other strands. When I started putting them together, there was something missing. I remembered the ocean jasper I bought on a whim. Sometimes I surprise myself!

I always make a bracelet to stack.
I'm not happy with the earrings. I think they are too plain.

Components:

All LB: Unicorne mossy green brim rings. 10mm Amazonite. 6mm ocean jasper.

    I’m amazed that the amazonite is so muted. It’s cool, though. Ocean jasper is always a favorite of mine because of the surprising variety in stones. I think you’ve found the right combination.

    Is it possible the Amazonite is dyed? I have never seen it that dark. It is an amazing color for this set, though!! Maybe tomorrow when I look at this on a real computer at work, I will be able to see the real color. :) Excellent use of materials, Julie!! :)

    Your sense of design is just growing all the time – - you made some outstanding choices of elements. Also think the earrings are fine – - but did you consider a “double dangle” – - like the dangles on your bracelet clasp with the larger bead on a chain ??

    Must be Brazilian Amazonite–I can see the striations now. Love that stone!!! I do like the earrings, too, but Paula might be on to something if you want more pizazz. I love the idea of a double dangle–the more movement the better. :) I always entertain myself be shaking my danglies around all days. :)

    Whims are good. They can lead to unexpected treasures. Love your choice of color and the design is excellent! :)

    Yeah, that mental pic must be kinda interesting, huh, Valley girl. :) (remember the song: “do your (ears, b**bs, or some other body part) hang low, do they wobble to and fro? Can you tie them in a knot? Can you tie them in a bow? ……”) Yep, unfortunately those are also a big problem. ;)

    Becky and ValleyGirl… both of you should be shamed by your inappropriate — yet hillarious!!! — comments!!!

    Thanks ladies. I like this one since it is blue but also brownish and multi.

    Julie,this combination is stunning. I’ve also never seen quite that shade of Amazonite. It’s really beautiful,and soooo smooth. I love muted soft colors. The earrings look good to me. :)
