About this design:

I made the bracelet a while back and wanted to make a necklace for it. The purple beads were very dramatic so I wanted to keep the design simple.


Purple sea jasper, filigree, onyx beads and silver findings.

    The necklace is very interesting to the eye,with the rounds,oval and triangular as a focal.
    Very thoughtful designs,and I’m sure this set would be lots of fun to wear.

    I too like the triangular filigree piece as the focal and those purple jasper stones are dazzling! Wonderful designs!

    Stunning set! I also really like the triangle filagree as the focal. The vibrant jasper stones are just stunning and the triangle is a wonderful contrast.
    Love how you used the silver spacers on the bracelet too. They seem to echo the filagree scrolls. I do have a suggestion for you on the bracelet. If you use some sort of round which is lightly smaller than the opening of the tubes you won’t get as much gapping when the bracelet curves. It’s virtually impossible to eliminate it in a bracelet but the rounds seem to help. Here’s an example:

    Thanks, Gail. I made that bracelet a couple of years ago and I think I will redo it with smaller tubes or large seed beads and use the onyx beads as well. And I also have noted that the silver tubes will pit after a while.
