Beads from the Earth: Gemstones & Vintaj Natural Metals

Gemstones & Vintaj Natural Metals are meant to be together! They both come from the earth and end up in your hands to create a beautiful story made through jewelry. I was lucky to design with some of my favorites this past month and I hope you enjoyed my interpretation of our Mineral Autumn theme.

I love designing with gemstones, all kinds! Here you can see the glow of these gorgeous Sunstone top-drilled nuggets dangling from the bracelet as I was assembling it… they have a little sparkle to them, simply stunning.

Use a 1.5″ Eye Pin & Chain Nose Pliers to string through top-drilled beads to create a wrapped loop bead drop… (the perfect loop is already formed for you, just create the coils!)

 

Embracing Leaves bracelet features a mix of Vintaj Natural Brass & Artisan Copper. A soft palette of patinas were applied over the Artisan Copper Mission Leaf to pick up the tones in the lovely and warm hues of the Sunstone & Jasper beads from Rings & Things!

Leaves, leaves & more leaves! Turn a Filigree Leaf Charm into a creative connector by simply enlarging an opening with a Metal Awl

 

Another earthy mix of Vintaj Natural Brass & Artisan Copper with Wonderstone, Red Creek Jasper & Picasso Marble gemstone beads from Rings & Things! I thought the fox from our Pine Forest DecoEmboss die was perfect to surround him with acorns, pine cones, & leaves.
