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.


  1. oooooh, I love those purple beads .... what a beautiful bracelet! The stuff of your imagination is wonderful!

  2. At first glance, I thought the blue beads were little globes of the world! I like the unexpectd swirls of color.
