3 for the Show

About this design:

Finally using some Ocean Jasper nuggets I got from LB a few months back. All 3 of the ones it the first pic came from the same strand of beads - isn't it cool how the colors vary in these gemstones? The very colorful ones are the dyed howlite disks. Various leather cords and lacing.

Did I say I was making these for some up-coming arts & crafts shows? :)

    Love all your designs, Cindy – - and I might steal your basic idea ! Am going to be a “vender” (that’s how they spelled it) at the local County Fair next week and am trying some leather designs for the first time. Hope your show is a big success – - -

    I really like these – it’s a simple design that lets the stones shine on their own – looks great w/the leather. Stunning!

    Love them all, the Ocean Jasper is a fantastic stone, but the ones with Magnesite are so funky, good luck :D

    Very cool design! I like the doubled-over leather technique with the stones placed centrally. I never can think of good designs with nuggets, but this is a great way to use them!

    Thanks ladies (and gents?).

    Yes, Paula, feel free to “steal” this design, as it really isn’t anything original. I’ve seen tons of designs like this in various incarnations. It can be made with some pretty wide price-points, too, but I like to keep mine in the $12-15 range for affordability. :) Good luck as a “vender!”
