On the bench: coated hematite beads

I have a current obsession with these metallic hematite beads. I just can't stop using them lately! The colors are wonderful and they photograph really well in the right natural light. Here are some of the finished pieces I've been making....

Square shaped heishi! Love!

These rectangular tube beads are my favorite!





This foxy bracelet was a favorite. I have had many requests for more of these, so in the next few days, I will be making about 3 more, and will announce on Facebook when they'll be listed. It's first come first served so be on the look out for my announcement! The beads on this, the focal beads, will vary slightly in each piece. As will the leather. no two exactly alike!

  1. Will there be any more earrings like the top set?
    And what are those nuggets next to the ceramic bead in the foxy bracelet?
