Gemstone Nugget Bracelet

Oh, I had an awful time with these beautiful gemstones.  I strung them on a temporary wire and tried about four different ways of stringing them and nothing seemed to do them justice. 
I don't even remember what made me decide to simply use rings between the nuggets.  Once the decision was made, it was a matter of finding and making enough big rings to use.  Some are hammered to be flat on the outside and some are hammered square.  Some are just left round.

I like them this way!  The nuggets came from MiGems and I was so thrilled when they came; aahhh, pretties.....
They are amethyst, rose quartz and aquamarine nuggets and I still have some left to fondle.
The bracelet is up on my Artfire shop and I hope  everybody else thinks these stones are as gorgeous as I do.  Did I tell you how much I love stones?


  1. I love stones and can tell that you love them too. The bracelet is gorgeous, love the rings, great design. I love the rough nuggets, though surprisingly smooth to touch. I used them once for a necklace, I will locate the pix and share with you someday soon.

  2. I'd love to see that, Regina. Share!

  3. Hi Susan, just saw this beautiful bracelet on your Artfire site. The design is terrific, love the wire work in between the nuggets. You've got some lovely jewellery in your store.

  4. Hi, Susan!
