Zebra J. & Copper

About this design:

This is a hefty bracelet. But I love it. The one I made with the square spacers sold immediately. Boo hoo hoo. :(
I put a good price on it thinking no one will want it. This is my replacement. Not quite the same... but Okay. Made some twisted antique copper jump rings then hammered them flat.


Lima: Purple Zebra jasper, metallic peacock crystal, copper toggle and two styles of copper spacers. My Stash: Deep green Jade cubes, twisted flat jump rings.

    How “purple” came out as purpose, I have no idea.

    haha! Purple Zebra Jasper. Must be time for a nap.

    Love this!! I bet that feels just heavenly on your wrist! I love wearing heavy rocks around mine. :) Those crystals and the jade are perfect matches to the very bold zebra. Love your homemade spacers, too!! That’s another skill on my to-learn list. :)
