I have a batch of flourite that looks so much like sea glass. These stones glow in beautiful blue, green and purple colors that remind me of tropical seas. I had been trying to decide what to do with them. I made a bracelet from some of them over the weekend. I also handmade the toggle clasp. It just speaks of carefree summer days to me…something I’m looking forward too! I will have to make some earrings, at least one necklace and some more bracelets as I have a decent-sized batch of these stones.
The necklace was pure inspiration also. I just started creating freeform filigree with 16 gauge SS wire and this necklace appeared. I was trying to figure out what to do with this beautiful ametrine. It was perfect for it. This necklace has a very different feel from the bracelet, two different sources of inspiration, two very different looks.
