Mookaite and and a elephant

About this design:

I am pretty sure I remember Jogi posting bracelet of Mookaite beads. I was then inspired to use some of my own Mookaite in a bracelet. It didn't turn out like I had planned...but what does. The last is my elephant earrings that I thought I had lost.

Components:

Mookaite, Autumn metallics, brass chain, brass leaves, brass star, Czech flowers, raku bead and brass lobster

    I’m sitting here in my living room with no power. So I’m viewing your bracelet an earrings on my phone. I love mookaite ( I just ordered some in matte as well). The colors are so well balanced in those gemstones. I love your bracelet. What is the little cream colored tube bead at the top on your primary pic? I love that and the star addition. Love the elephant charms. Beautiful job Jane!

    Jane, I like both. The mookaite is just so pretty and I guess that the dangle at the clasp may be some mookaite as well or is it another jasper? I love gemstones and this one is pretty high up there on the preferred list. Did you patina the leaves? I am so glad that you didn’t lose the sweet elephants!

    Jogi…I didn’t patina the leaves…I just poked a hole in them to put the dangles on. I’m not sure what the stone is I put on the clasp.

    I’m not familiar with Mookaite but love what you made with it. Those elephant earrings are cool. Glad you found them.

    Nice use of the Czech metallics in the bracelet–their warm tones complement the Mookaite wonderfully. It’s great you found the elephant earrings! I love the upturned bead caps on them. The mismatched beads make them unique & special too.

    I’m so glad you found the elephant earrings. They are so striking. I’m curious also about the cream tube on the bracelet. You always create wonderful bracelets and it’s so enjoyable to check out the various components.

    Thanks you all…I think that little point could be a Mookaite…but I ‘m not sure.
