Erica is a budding jewelry maker who simply adores gemstones. She has a great eye for them. She brought a strand of gorgeous tourmaline gemstones to a workshop. She then used the rondelle cut beads with copper beads and clasp from Debbie (Widget Beads) collection to great effect in the following necklace design. The copper really does compliment the rich multi-colored hues of tourmaline.
Erica also created this pretty pearl bracelet. The pale color of the pearls and silver findings were contrasted with maroon window beads. Notice she chose a magnetic clasp - that's a good solution to the pesky problem of trying to put on and take off bracelets one-handed!
