Amethyst Cubed

About this design:

I just love the look of the wrap bracelet with these 4mm cubes stones. I just got these matte amethyst cubes and couldn't wait to try them out. I arranged them in an ombre pattern like my last piece and was very pleased with the result. Only I don't have enough of the light ones to make another bracelet.


4mm amethyst cubes, frosted lilac glass cubes, silver Toho seed beads, distressed brown leather cord and ornate pewter button.

    Thank you JC Hamm for your compliments on my photos too. I try my best but sometimes just can’t get a good one. This day I just had perfect light. Lighting is everything as my boyfriend says. He’s been teaching me photo skills for awhile now.

    I love the bracelet- ditto others’ comments – but I am really jealous of the fine weather in these photos. It’s cold & grey & sleeting here today :( I want to bask in that sunshine!

    It’s always been sunny here as I travel through Texas, just like Arizona, it’s great. Although I understand your drab weather days as I grew up in South Dakota. I feel your pain!
