Midnight Copper

About this design:

Just fell in love with the Blue Goldstone and then it kept showing up on the BGBM last Spring. What could I do but buy some ? Made the necklace first, then decided to make the bracelet, too . Finished length of the necklace is 20 inches.

From Lima Beads (for the bracelet): TierraCast Antique Copper (plated) Casbah Round Bead 7mm, TierraCast Antique Copper (plated) Heirloom Toggle Clasp 20x15, 24mm Bar. Other components: Antique copper beaded heishi, antique copper ornate bead 12 mm, copper rounds 3mm, navy (dyed) agate rounds 5 mm, antique copper lobster clasp.

    Great design Paula for those gold and blue goldstone beads. I have some from one of their lunch specials, and couldn’t figure out what to do with them. Guess I need to get me some dark blue stones. This is Beautiful!!

    Thanks for your comments, everyone ! And Asia, I’m kicking myself that I didn’t buy MORE denim Czech beads – - the ones I bought found their way into several things – - -
