So many women have really loved the bronzite tile and yet, all their creations have been unique to the individual designers.

Cathie loves earth tone colours. She said that as a potter, one of her favourite Japanese glaze reminds her of this gemstone, not surprisingly because it, like a number of Japanese glazes also contains iron (ferrous oxide). The slightly metallic lustre of both glaze and gemstome provides such rich character.

Cathie centralised the pendant between bronzish cylindrical and faceted beads. The remaining beads, with a slight graduation in size nearer the focal area, were seed beads in metallic and pearl-lustre hues.
