For Betty

About this design:

My friend recently lost her mom Betty(natural causes), and passed some of her beaded necklaces on to me. The center stones on this bracelet are from one of them. (also the carnelian on another design I just posted) Maybe it's bloodstone?

    Great bracelet and a very lovely thing to do with the gift beads.
    I think you are right about the stone in second picture… looks like blood stone to me. :)
