Big Blue

by: Dwyn Tomlinson


The soft pinks and blues of the Powder Blue Impression Jasper strike me as very soothing and pretty. I went to town and make a whole suite of items from this lovely stone. (Look below for a sneak peak)

My first thought was to combine gold-plated metal findings and beads with the Powder Blue Impression Jasper, but I found I did not care for the look. The bright copper metal beads and finding - that was another story, however! The combination is gorgeous! The pinky tones of the bright copper perfectly complement the soft translucent aqua and contrasting opaque pinky color of this Impression Jasper.

Bracelet - Big Blue

12 mm beads, with bead caps on each side, and a crimp bead as a spacer in between. But then I ran out of bead caps, so instead of giving up, I switched to using 5 jump rings as a spacer - as I had a full pack of jumprings too! Sometimes you just have to use what you have! Just thread the jumprings on, one after the other, and they will nestle into a nice textured spacer. This bracelet is strung on stretchy elastic, and the large size of the hole in the jump rings is perfect for completely hiding the knot!
