Amethyst Cubed


About this design:

I just love the look of the wrap bracelet with these 4mm cubes stones. I just got these matte amethyst cubes and couldn't wait to try them out. I arranged them in an ombre pattern like my last piece and was very pleased with the result. Only I don't have enough of the light ones to make another bracelet.

Components:

4mm amethyst cubes, frosted lilac glass cubes, silver Toho seed beads, distressed brown leather cord and ornate pewter button.

    Thank you all for the great compliments! I just love these cube beads too, just wish I could find more..hint hint LB!
    Thank you JC Hamm for your compliments on my photos too. I try my best but sometimes just can’t get a good one. This day I just had perfect light. Lighting is everything as my boyfriend says. He’s been teaching me photo skills for awhile now.

    I love the bracelet- ditto others’ comments – but I am really jealous of the fine weather in these photos. It’s cold & grey & sleeting here today :( I want to bask in that sunshine!

    It’s always been sunny here as I travel through Texas, just like Arizona, it’s great. Although I understand your drab weather days as I grew up in South Dakota. I feel your pain!
