Red Creek and Copper

About this design:

I just love how the red creek jasper looks with copper, sort of rustic. To keep with that, I used brown cord and leather to tie it all together.


Red Creek Jasper 6mm rounds, various copper beads and spacers, 2mm natural brown leather cord and C-Lon cord mostly all from LB and copper filigree button from my stash

    Love this, Angela! You are always coming up with the most beautiful creations!

    Can you recommend the correct size of C-Lon cord for use in bracelets like this? .4mm, .5mm or 1mm? Thanks!!
    I imagine it’s great for ladder stich too.

    Thank you all so much! These beads have normal size holes, I got them from LB.(although I have some of the large hole ones on the way ;) ). I used .5mm C-Lon cord and fits through just fine. It seems more sturdy and durable to me than the .4mm yet still is very flexible and gives it nice drape.

    I can’t take credit for the leather clasp idea, that is something I’ve seen many artists using and I just love the look so I had to try it.

    I like any kind of jasper, but Red Creek is probably my favorite. I also pair it with copper or brass because it is so earthy.
    I really the simplicity of the design which lets the stones speak out loud and clear. The dangles on the ring are PERFECT! :)
