Leopardskin Jasper Donut

About this design:

All of the materials were purchased from Lima. The donut moves inside if the bale. I decided that a slip know would be best so that I can decide how long or short I wanted to wear it.

    Nice stone and you are doing well with the weaving. You know, I’ve never been able to figure out how to make those slip knots. They baffle me. They are really nice to have for adjusting your piece. Good work.

    I love the idea of slip knots for adjustment. Beautiful organic form – love the donut.

    Thanjs, K and Beady! The stone is beautiful so I didn’t want to cover it up.

    Love the donut and agree that it is so beautiful that covering it up just wouldn’t create the same beauty. I love the slip knots when making a necklace with a donut pendant.

    How great to create your own bail to hold the donut–so many design possibilities. The leather cording was a nice choice to enhance the natural, rustic feel of the Leopardskin Jasper.
