I was fortunate to go to a local gem show and stumbled across some gorgeous sapphire and pyrite beads. They were dark blue with cool veining throughout and evoked that mysterious feeling I was searching for. These became my inspiration. I knew I wanted to do a beaded bracelet stack as opposed to a single strand. So the search was on to find more beads to compliment the ones I just found. I ended up selecting some beautiful midnight blue tiger eye chunks, some deep blue faceted glass beads, caramel-colored Czech glass disc beads with a hint of teal, some cool African oxidized brass beads, a strand of small pyrite chunks, some pearl glass beads and added in an ebony zebra wood focal bead to complete the set.
Voilà! The beaded bracelet set above was my final creation! I love the design of this bracelet stack and it is everything I had envisioned. Crossing my fingers that the wardrobe stylist agrees!
