Baby's Got Blue Eyes

About this design:

Blue is my favorite color and I love the color of the Sodalite. I ran out of the bigger Sodalite beads and so made the bracelet with the small rice stones and put them on stretchy thread so it could be wrapped several times to make it more substantial.


Sodalite rounds and rice, Chalcedony flat coins, sterling silver rounds, clasp and findings.

    Nice mix proving everything does not have to be exactly the same to match. Great job on this one.

    This set is beautiful. I love the combination of the stones, and I think using the rice for the bracelet was a great idea. Fabulous.
