Gold-ish and a little Bold-ish

About this design:

Loved these Turquoise Zebra Jasper Round beads. (Part of my "Make Mine Bold" fresh pick.) I paired it with antique gold components and fire polished Czech rondels. Did a simple repeat pattern. Now, how much better it would look with the Saki bronze toggle. (Into the cart it goes.)


Lima: Turquoise Zebra Jasper Round. Not sure: Fire polished Czech rondels. My stash: antique gold toggle, beads and bead caps.

    What a beautiful piece. It has a bit of an antique look,which is great. You chose the perfect rondelles to compliment the big beads.

    Very classic, Terri ! Agree with you that any of those Saki toggles would make any bracelet all the better – - -

    It is a little bit boldish, but I like it, after seeing your pick and Wanda’s I order some of the purple zebra, just waiting for one more component to arrive, I also have a bracelet in mind.Please show us the redesign one too, that Saki is going to blow our budgets, bad LB ;)

    Asia, I’ve used the purple Zebra paired it with a deep green jade cube shaped bead. And I love it. The one bracelet I did immediately sold. (forgot to take a picture of it)Can’t seem to find the square copper spacer beads I used. So I had to make another using rounds. But I wish I could find the large 10mm squares 5mm wide. Lima has the 6mm squares. But it is not the look I was going for. I have yet to take a photo of the new one I did.

    When I saw the teal Zebra I had to try them out too. Thank You ladies for all your kind comments! I appreciate them all! :)
