About this design:

I found the orange stones at a trunk show at the local bead shop. Not marked, not sure what they are. Love them with the copper!
And I love that the "clasp" can go either way.


probably 14 and 26 gauge copper wire, 8 mm stones

    I think the gems in this are Agate. Great way to show case them in this bangle. I love doing this design myself it’s such a fun way to showcase gems!

    Agate sounds right :) They weren’t labeled and the saleswoman wasn’t sure.
    This style fairly easy for me to put together. And I love all the possible combinations of beads and wire.

    Great wire wave, Jeanne. You have become quite proficient with the wave. Now….you need to try it free hand with eyeball measure and random sizes. :D Then square corners, loops, circles and any other variation you can come up with. :D

    Thank you so much, dear friends!

    Nancy – you’ve read my mind! I was itching to pick up a piece of copper last night while watching mindless tv. But hubby feels neglected when I do that. Guess he’d rather I fall asleep. LOL Oh well – later – I have some square and oval beads I’d like to try.

    Ok Susan – you made me go through all of LB’s agates – It’s very possibly Monaco agate. I just might have to get some to check it out.

    Can you believe it, Lynn??? I used “orange”!

    Perfect name… makes me hungrey. This is such a fun bangle and you’re right, the possibilities are endless. Do you use a mandrel or wig jig to make your waves?
