Week 9: Bay

Finally got to finish these! I’ve been waiting to use these green aluminum earwires, and Week 9 offered the perfect opportunity.

The beaded beads are flat even-count peyote (curled and stitched to make tubes). The green gemstone is dyed mountain “jade” (I think), which is a dolomite marble from Asia. The round drops are mother of pearl.

These colors make me think of iridescent mermaid scales. 🙂

The raw materials The hard part -- my fingers haven't forgiven me yet. Close up

All done!
