Followers of this blog will know that I love working with the gemstone Tiger’s Eye.
Recently I made two exciting new Tiger Eye additions to my gemstone bead stash – faceted Red Tiger’s Eye and some rare Blue Tiger’s Eye.
Because Tiger Eye is such a naturally beautiful gemstone, I favour simple designs that let the gemstones speak for themselves.
I combined the red faceted beads with a single square Hill Tribe brushed silver focal bead to make up this modern, urban stretch bracelet.
The Blue Tiger’s Eye beads I bought were stunning large smooth ovals. I can honestly say I have never seen Blue Tiger Eye beads of this quality or size before. The blue chatoyant striations in them are almost mesmerising!
I again kept the design simple, just adding 4mm faceted genuine sapphire accents and tiny patterned silver tone spacer beads to make up a simple elegant necklace.
This necklace actually sold on my website last night, and is heading off to California today.
Tiger Eye must have been in the air this weekend – as I also sold these two Tiger Eye pieces as well.
