About this design:

I made this piece for a friend for Christmas. She's not big on jewelry, especially bracelets, but liked the idea of a cord-wrapped one (she liked my previous bracelet, Warrior's Bond). I told her the leather keeps the bracelet from sliding around a lot, and she decided she wanted one with blue/green/purple/pink. This is what I came up with. Story and more info on my blog:


Fluorite, leather cord, button, FireLine clear beading thread

    That button is phenomenal! Not only does it compliment the fluorite fantastically but it also looks vaguely otherworldly giving the bracelet a different feel.

    Oh my goodness.Flourite!!! She’s so lucky to be getting this. I’m sure she’ll adore it. Look at the quality of those stones.I can see one that is pink/green (my fav)! What an excellent choice for her. Flourite has a pretty glow,and the colors are mesmerizing,but it’s also very soft and serene,IMO. The button is fantastic as well. It’s an awesome gift.

    @ Nancy MC: heh…thanks. I had noooo idea going into this project that high-quality fluorite = freakishly expensive! But I saw the strand and knew it was perfect.
