Bing cherry bracelet

March 22, 2010

Me and a couple of like minded friends visited the Gem show last year. We had a lot of fun browsing through all the stores, finding the right pieces, haggling over prices and buying more than we had originally planned.  I bought this beautiful string of garnets there and I finally got around to using it for a bracelet this weekend. I love the deep red colour and the brilliant shine from its faceted surface.

‘ Mother of pearl’ bracelet

February 9, 2010

I picked up this strand of beads from my neighbourhood Michaels. It caught my attention because it had a  unique shape, different from those that I have seen before. The bead is  called ‘Mother of Pearl’. They come in several natural colors and are bleached and dyed for decorative use.  The bead has a shimmery look which makes it quite sought after. I tried a variety of designs and settled with this bracelet. Do you like it?
