Make 'n' Tell Challenge Day 14: Aubergine and Raku
Our weather's been fantastic! And I have to admit, I've been feeling a little bit guilty about spending so much time on the computer... and not enough time outdoors! So today's Make 'n' Tell Challenge is short and sweet. I made the beads on the weekend and put the bracelet together tonight. The base colour of the beads reminds me of eggplant, and I think the raku surface decoration gives the beads an organic look. I used wood jasper stone beads and a couple of faceted amethyst rondelles. I wire wrapped the beads together with 22 gauge sterling silver wire and made a hand forged clasp. I like the way it turned out.
