Hold That Tiger!!!


About this design:

Found this great Tiger Iron strand at a local bead store, and really let it sit for about a year. Finally decided it needed to be shown with Hematite and Tiger Eye. It is heavy, but very pretty. It's fun because the whole set is magnetic. I never misplace the earrings, they are usually holding onto the necklace! This set is for sale.

Components:

Large Tiger Iron Beads, different shapes of magnetic hematite beads, tiger eye rounds and flat rounds, 49 strand beading wire, silver tone findings.

    Thank you Lynn. Tonight I kept Liz while her Daddy went to his office Christmas party. She wants to make a new design “so those Chick ladies, you know, our friends, will talk to me some more.” I told her next visit we will try to do that. :D

    Thank you K H and Lynda. :D
    It is a pretty necklace..as everyone says here, it is so hard to capture the real shimmer of these beads with a camera. Tiger eye is a chatoyant gemstone, and this tiger iron is mostly a blend of tiger eye and hematite.
