More Rhyolite in Circles

About this design:

I found this circle section a few days ago. Don't know when I made it...don't know why I made it. Guess it was waiting on the rhyolite beads.

I finished it today, made the chain and clasp. Haven't seen it on anyone yet so I don't know how it fits. Guess I need to call my daughter-in-law and see if she would be the "duty neck."

I also added the picture of the rhyolite bracelet. I think I'm on a roll...but there are only 5 or 6 beads left. Ear rings?


12ga, 18ga, 24ga copper wire, rhyolite beads

    Perfect pairing (Cu & Rhyo), love how the stone rounds nestle into the circular swirls.

    Personally, I don’t care when or why you made the copper circle section, Nancy — I’m just glad you found it!!! :D Wow — This is fabulous and looks great with the matching bracelet! I vote “yes” to your earring idea! You really do crack me up, Nancy, since you don’t wear earrings and yet you make such beautiful ones!!! :D

    I also agree with Mary’s comment about the nestling stones. 8)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, Everyone.

    Lynn, I finally remembered why I made this piece. It was to see how difficult it would be to make a circle inside another circle. Now about that chain… it’s just simple figure 8 shapes linked together. It really isn’t too hard to make.
