At first I was overwhelmed with choices. I don't normally work with gemstones but I loved all the different colors and shapes. So first I worked with the Chrysophase chips and some small agates. The first photo is the entire set. I made the bracelet with memory wire and the earrings I wire wrapped some gold filled wire around the stones. Just a beautiful stone focal and some oblong chips.
I then started on my favorite set. I just loved these beads made out of cord wrap. These beads are soft and light, and added with these wonderful ceramic square beads just give a very romantic/boho vibe. I wire wrapped units of different beads.
This focal I had in my stash and it was really going to be used for bracelet bars but I decided the coloring worked well with the other parts. I didn't really need to add the clasp as this necklace is quite long but I thought it adds to the design.
The final set was made up of these beautiful turquoise beads and this fabulous copper focal. Very unusual with all the twisting of the copper. I made just simple earrings because this necklace is only 17 inches long so it sits closer to the neckline and I didn't want to overwhelm the look.
Turns out these are still all the pieces I have left. I am already working on a pearl bracelet with the lovely glass sparkly beads and something to add the black key to as well as I realized I did not use the clasp Elsie gave me so I will probably make another necklace.
