Cubes, squares and rectangles do add a different dimension to handmade jewelry compared to round and oval beads and Tammy was quick to capitalise on this.

She used both cubes and squares for this classy bracelet. The cubes are hematite which adds value to the design. The square shiny glass beads were flat with rounded edges which helped soften their look. Hematite has a colour that can be best described as "gunmetal" which contrasted well with the jet black of the glass beads.
