These designs all use garnet, citrine, aventurine and quartz crystal, and the colours remind me of Nordic or Faroe patterns.
My other ranges which feature the simple stacking design idea: Arran, Avalon, Jura and Guinevere have all sold like hotcakes this winter, which is fantastic! The only problem is that the beautiful greeny green garnet beads that are in all these designs are all used up, and are not available for the foreseeable future.
This gave me the opportunity to explore other gorgeous colour combinations I can make with my collections of 8mm gemstone rondelle beads. Oh yes, I collect them!
I’m hoping these new additions will be a popular – there’s still time for them to make it to some grown-up stockings…
