The gems intertwine beautifully. The two gems have been strung as individual strands onto wildfire thread for strength and stability as well as to allow movement.
The piece has been completed with silver plated findings. Silver was used to compliment the Apatite and Quartz with its coolness.
Thank for dropping by.

Today I've been making some Leather Wrap Bracelets for my Etsy Shop.
Here' s one in progress
I enjoy making these bracelets as to incorporate the beads you have to weave them to the leather, I use a contrast thread, in the same way you bead patterns on a loom. I have used a diamanté style acrylic button for the clasp.
Here are some finished ones.
This will be in my Etsy shop soon, please drop by xxxx

Had a play with my Hunkydory card kit that I had in my stash - Halcyon Days.
The images are bright and summery and although it feels a long way from that at the moment I loved the images and enjoyed working with them.
I decided to make the little box scene cards which have a few layers of decoupage.
I started by constructing the box frame. This is the rear side. The opaque area allows you space to write your greeting. The set also comes with a little stand which enables the card to stand on its own.
Just love Hunkydory Kits, the quality is brilliant and easy to work with.
Then I added the decoupage layers. This shows just the first layer.
and this is the final result!
I made four in total; hope you like them :)
