Moving back to gemstones again, today’s project started with a quartet of carved bone beads that I’ve had for ages and ages. I think I picked them up at the Gem and Mineral show three years ago, but I’m not 100% sure. They have little flowers carved into them, and the back of the beads are slightly curved, making them absolutely perfect for a bracelet. They’re double-drilled, so I browsed through my gemstones to find something that would be a good size to put with them that would sit nicely and balance the size of the bone beads. I settled on some 8mm peach aventurine rounds, and included some little copper accent beads. The toggle clasp is bright copper and has a twisted look to it. I feel like this will be a great summer piece!

When my task list gets long, it’s sometimes hard to see it getting done. Don’t get snowed under by the size of your list, just pick one task and get it done. It’s amazing how doing just one thing helps get all the rest of the things accomplished. -Robyn
Have a fabulous Friday!
