Summer Design Series :: RAW Crystals

RAW. A stitch I don't use very often. but sometimes it can be just the right texture and rhythm for the beads. 

These are a gun metal color of crystals that I got from ZnetShows and I absolutely love them. I used a variation on the stitch to include two smaller beads (size 16) to each crystal and it created a beautiful, simple bracelet band. 

I added a slide clasp and silver charm with the tree of life. Which I think looks quite nice as the focal to the bracelet. This piece was the last one I made. And so it was just a tad late, and isn't shown in the recent Spark Magazine. But I thought you all might like to see just one more design as I finish out my Summer Design Series.

Gorgeous! Perfect for jeans or something a little more dressy. The tree of life was a great choice! I love gunmetal. The other day I was swimming in the ocean at dusk, and the water looked like liquid mercury, it was reflecting silver and gunmetal.

Beautiful! Two types of beads can bring a lot of loveliness and this is such an everyday wearable bracelet or a dress up one too! Love it!
