Gems Among the Stones

About this design:

I am in love with these amazonite ovals! Also wanted to use the last of the silver all just came together. The painted stones are among about 3 dozen I have painted throughout this pandemic!

    Your bracelet is beautiful, but totally outshined by the stones. The pandemic has made me less creative, but it has obviously inspired you to make beautiful things.

    The Amazonite ovals look great in this design with the silver wire & oval focal. I like the little swirl treatment on the one bead. The stones are incredibly marvelous with the tiny details painted on them. I think these are fantastic & would be a joy to have around–reminders of finding happiness amidst the crazy time we’re living in now during this pandemic. I love them all, but especially the one with the growing foliage. Reminds me to keep growing despite the setbacks we’re all surely facing. What kind of paints are you using? Thanks so much for sharing these with us along with your bracelet.
