Love in Abundance

About this design:

I just wanted to share this with you, my bead buddies ! I have made this bracelet for my best friend. We have been friends since school days ( a long time ago ! ;o) and Jane has just lost her Mum. I thought it would be nice to make something for her to wear every day to remind her of her love for her Mum. So...rose quartz for love, her Mum's birthstone is Ruby for July and Jane's birthstone is Emerald for May. I thought of incorporating all these together, I added a silver puss cat as they both liked cats and a rose quartz heart charm, love.


Rose Quartz, Ruby, Tourmaline in green (a substitute for the emerald !)
