Leopard w/ Spark-le

About this design:

As I mentioned in the pick a few days ago this is nothing to write home about...basic beads on a string sort of thing. But I really like it and I wear it a lot more than I thought I would. I was gifted the Leopard skin Jasper beads. And I had this off color red aventurine. They just seemed to compliment each other. To add the sparkle I added some Smoky & Jet Hematite Crystals. I adore those crystals. Can hardly wait for Lima to get some more of these babies. Thanks for looking. And Have a great week!


Lima: Smoky & Jet Hematite Crystal Faceted Rondelle 6mm My stash: Leopardskin Jasper 12mm, antique silver bead caps, red aventurine, antique silver toggle.

    Love it BI! Sometimes “Keep It Simple” is THE way to go! Shiny beads and shiny silver and a super interesting stone focal. :)

    Thanks so much Ladies for all your kind comments! On it’s own it is simple. But what I like to do…is stack it with a few other bracelets I have…which seems to be the look now anyway. :)
    I have a black Licorice bracelet I have recently made and then an antique silver stretch type of bracelet with rhinestones that my hubby got for me…to help with a little more sparkle. :-D

    I don’t think I ever commented on this one. I really like it. It may be sort of simple and symetrical but the stones are pretty and over all its very interesting and something I’d enjoy wearing.
