Cool Lynx - Double Strand Bracelet
I love making stretch bracelets because they are so fun and easy to wear. However, I also love the flexibility of working with non-stretch bracelets; the ability to use multiple strands and decorative clasps. I came up with a series of designs based on duality - double strands and double clasps and the whole design is a bit off-centre (like me perhaps).
This is the first piece I created. It uses the cool blues of African Turquoise set of by howlite chips. I snuck a deep blue drusy in there because you can never have too many drusys!
African Turquoise – Despite its name, African Turquoise is not the gemstone turquoise at all, but rather a form of Jasper. This gorgeous speckled teal stone is said to balance mood swings, (you know, if that sort of thing happens to you. *ahem*) Bring a bit more structure and balance to your soul by adding African Turquoise.
Howlite - This is one of our favourite gemstones to work with and was originally discovered in Nova Scotia, Canada (one of several of our 'homes'). Howlite is a powerful calming stone and promotes wisdom and enlightenment and couldn't we all use more of that in our lives!
