About this design:

I loved these yellow turquoise twist beads when I got them 2 years ago but I could never figure out what to do with them. Then I got these luscious lemon quartz cubes last week which matched perfectly and it all came together today.


Yellow Turquoise, Lemon Quartz, Onyx, black suede lace from my stash. Brass spacers, casbah bead and bali button from LB

    Thank you all so much for the great comments! I’m so glad you like it. :) I was worried that the suede would be to rustic for the rest of the bracelet, but I really wanted to use that Bali button. ;)

    Peggy, the turquoise twist stones are 8x15mm.

    I love the suede with this!! I think it makes the bracelet more wearable for everyday. Love the twist beads but that is one gorgeous hunk of lemon quartz! Not two things I would have thought go together either but the effect is stunning!

    I know the feeling when seemingly impossible pearls suddenly find their family! Then you feel justified buying pearls with your heart, not just your head! And this is just a lovely bracelet, and the black suede gives it just the right edge!
