Kyanite and tigers eye

About this design:

I am very attracted to the kyanite points I have and have been wanting to use them for a while now but was not sure with what. Today I happened to drop a tigers eye stone in my workshop which landed next to my kyanite and I thought what a great combination!


Kyanite, Tiger Eye, Amazonite, 20 gauge silver plated wire for jump rings. Lobster clasp, silver leaf chain for decoration at the end of the extender for the clasp.

    The tiger eye is a great contrast, bringing attention straight to the kyanite.

    Unusual combo but it works very well, Don’t you just love these happy accidents? Some times they are even better than what you have planned. :)

    Beautiful necklace. I agree that I would not think Kyanite with Tiger Eye,but look how well they compliment one another. It’s a very powerful looking combination. Your work is wonderful!
    Thank you for the sharing this. I’m very inspired. I have both stones in my stash. ;)

    This is a great combo! I never would have thought of it, but the colors are lovely together!Funny thing is some of my best combos happen because I have so many beads on my table and I “accidently” discover matches that I would not have thought of if everything was stored away all neat and tidy!

    Stones have a way of deciding designs on their own. We must listen to them. :)
