Sticks & Stones

About this design:

Stick focals, rough cut nuggets, pebbles, and chips are a favorite of mine. I enjoy creating with these because of the texture & unrefined element they add to any design. Looking through my beads when I started the necklace, I realized I had a bunch of Serpentine beads in a variety of shapes and thought I could incorporate some into a bracelet to match. These sticks & stones won’t break any ‘bones’ when worn with your favorite pair of jeans! :)

Components:

China Chrysoprase Sticks (LB), Chrysocolla Cut Freeforms (LB), Yellow ‘Turquoise’ Ovals, Dragon Fruit Quartz (LB), Hematite Squaredelles (LB), Antique Brass findings. Bracelet includes: Butter Jasper, New Jade tubes & cubes, turquoise dyed Quartz, AB pins

    What a fabulous piece! The colors are perfect. The turquoise dyed quartz gives a nice pop and contrast of color. All the different shapes add marvelous texture. This piece goes well with jeans or chic. I love it!

    Outstanding necklace and bracelet. I love all of the different shapes of beads. To me it adds more interest than using multitudes of different co!it’s in a piece.

    The color combinations in this set are outstanding and a bit unexpected. The colors of the chrysocolla and yellow turquoise make a very vibrant combination. The inclusions and colors in the China chrysoprase unify all of the elements in outstanding design.

    I’m with you on nuggets, chips etc. And the texture they can add to a design….perfect example you have created here. I, too, love your pop of turquoise! I always love how you have a matching bracelet. Great work as always Crystal!

    Beautiful Crystal. I love the colors and design and the textures. I especially love the squardelles and cubes to reinforce the shapes. Lovely set.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Fantastic set CC! Your attention to detail and skill is amazing. Everything is so well thought out and just works! The color, the textures, the shapes,the design, all work together to make one powerful set! I’ve been so inspired. Thank you so much for sharing. I want to borrow your idea of using squaredelles. Such a great look.

    Thank you all so much–I appreciate the encouraging words! You would never believe how many different color combinations I tried before settling on this one–Red Jasper was running in second place. The cubes were kinda fun to work with–I will have to dig up some of the others I have & explore using them in more designs. Thanks again. Have a great day everyone! :)

    Wow Crystal. How is a piece of jewelry both casual and sophisticated? That what strikes me about this one. I love the beads that make up the back of the necklace. Can you tell me the stone? I see a bracelet hiding in them, LOL

    Crystal this is just awesome. It’s makes me think of sitting on a tropical beach sipping a margaritas while staring at the turquoise waters.
    Just a great design perfectly put together. The bracelet is awesome also, I just can’t see the clasp.

  13. Crystal Canary
    Crystal Canary says:

    Thanks Kathleen & Deb. You all are very kind with your words.
    **Kathleen, the grey spotted beads in the back are Dragon Fruit Quartz which Lima carries. They have them in both regular & matte. I love both finishes.
    **Deb, I was experimenting with different way to take photos, and actually was going to use the third picture as the primary one. I was so focused on trying to take the pictures, that I was distracted & didn’t get one with the clasp. It’s actually a lobster & ring closure, with some dangles hanging from the ring side. After I posted, I thought I should get a full picture of the bracelet, but didn’t want to get my slate & camera out again. So much for trying to do something new!

    CC I meant to tell you how much I like the photos you showed us. They have great design too! I struggle with photos to post especially necklaces. I have to take them horizontally or when I post them Lima rotates them. I have no idea why. Anyway, love your photos too. Nice to hear how you finished the bracelet.

  15. Beady Little Eyes
    Beady Little Eyes says:

    Crystal – I love the photos also. The matte background really shows the beauty of the beads.

  16. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    I think your photos are perfect Crystal. I just didn’t see the clasp on the bracelet and wondered what you had used.
    Kye I used to have the issue of my photos being rotated to the side unless I took them that way. Then I started slightly cropping the photo and I haven’t really had that issue since.

  17. Crystal Canary
    Crystal Canary says:

    I appreciate the comments about the photos. I have been struggling with myself about the rut I’m in with taking them the same way all the time. I wanted to try something new, but as you can see, I sided with the one that looks the same as always. I like props, but think sometimes they can get a bit too busy and detract from the jewelry. Balance is definitely the key there. Thanks again.

    Thanks Deb! I’ll try cropping and see if that works for me too.
