I had a matched pair of crackled fluorite beads I had saved from a strand a while ago. Unfortunately, as fluorite is so easily damaged if not shipped correctly, I often find the beads unusable. The other beads on this strand were just too cracked, I felt, to make into jewellery. Abi thought they were beautiful, however, and you know what, I wish I had kept the other beads, because the cracks look great. Live and learn!
These earrings are made with sterling silver including the hand-shaped ear wires, and make a very elegant design.
And something for myself :)
I love the simplicity of these tiny tiny aquamarine beads wire wrapped onto this fine rolled gold chain. It’s very short – 14inches, a real choker.
Bye for now :)
