A dear SteedBeads customer, Heather DeLong, from Nova Scotia, Canada, sent me some of her old jewelry containing stone cabochons to inspire me to use the stones and/or jewelry items in some of my future creations. This week, I turned one of them, a green onyx bracelet, into a Kristi Lyn Glass original by embellishing it with green glass leaves and pale yellow aurora borealis bicone crystals. I’m excited by how it turned out, and especially how the dangles fall in two fringe-like tiers when your arm is held vertically. Check out the Green Onyx Leaf Bracelet on my website for more pictures and details. Thanks so much to Heather for providing the inspiration for this new treasure!
The background behind the bracelet in this photo is from one of my recent experimental encaustic paintings. I’m still trying to perfect the effect of ocean surf!
