Rockin Some Dumortierite


About this design:

I wanted to make a western themed double wrap knotted bracelet. I thought the dumortierite with it's denim blue color was perfect. I also added some Czech glass in the same blue and some rhinestone spacers for a touch of boho glam. The focal is a flying heart bead from LB. Time to get out the cowboy boots and rock this bracelet.

Components:

Dumortierite, Czech glass, rhinestone beads,pewter flying heart bead, star button, handmade (by me) oxidized fine silver link, leather cord

    Dumortierite is perfect for your western theme! Love the flashy highlights with the Czech & rhinestones too. I also wanted to mention your photos are very good. It is great taking your knotting technique and using it on a bracelet. :)

    Thanks for all of the great comments. Thanks Crystal Canary for your comment about the pictures. It took me a long time to figure out how to best capture the jewelry and show the details and the exact color. I bought a DVD on photographing jewelry and then read the manual that came with my camera. I’m still experimenting all the time. When you sell on Etsy you have to be a photographer as well as a jewelry maker.
