Copper Blue

About this design:

The Dumortierite beads have a bit of orangish color in them. I thought the copper would look good with them.


Dumortierite tumbled nuggets, Brazil Sodalite faceted nuggets, copper wire spacers and spirals that I made, antique copper beads, bead caps, toggle clasp, findings, pearls.

    Thank you Stormy. I’ve been saving up. These have been made during the last three months. I think the regular Sodalite is a bit more solid blue. I have some of it and it’s not speckled like the Brazil Sodalite. The Sodalite is more like the Dumortierite but without the rusty colors in them.
