100 Day Challenge: Day 77. Moss agate bracelet.

I have had these moss agate beads since the early days.  They’re rice-shaped and a lovely mottled green and white.  Fun fact: moss agate is not actually an agate, but a kind of jasper that’s misnamed.  Either way, they’re a lovely mix of colours and good in earthy pieces.  I wanted to make a bracelet, since I haven’t made nearly as many as the necklaces and earrings I’ve done in the Challenge so far, and these moss agate beads seemed like the perfect candidates for the job.  Since they’re quite petite, I needed something to be a focal piece for the bracelet.  I chose a faceted agate (of unknown kind) bead that I got in a random grab bag.  It’s light green and white, with a deep burgundy stripe running across it.  It was a perfect match!

100 Day Challenge: Day 9

I quite liked the combination of dark smoky quartz with the pale rose quartz in yesterday’s earrings.  I’m not always a fan of wearing pink, so to me the smoky grey-brown of the other beads mellows it out, and makes it feminine but not overly girly.  So, of course, I kept right on going.  🙂

Today’s project is a bracelet using the same set of beads.  Both quartzes are grouped and spaced with little silver spacers – tiny rounds for the smoky quartz and petite daisy spacers for the rose quartz, same as the ones used in the earrings.  I finished it off with a magnetic clasp, an easy option for putting on a bracelet.  I love how it turned out, and already have plans for tomorrow’s project to be a matching necklace.  Stay tuned!
