The one great thing about designing your own jewelry is the ability to combine whatever gemstone you like.

Debbie flexed her designer's prerogative and chose the ever popular bronzite tiles to go with tiger chips for both her bracelet and earrings. The different shapes plus the brighter tone of the seed beads all contributed to the contrasting elements needed to make this all brown design work.

Geologists often use the suffix "-ite" for minerals, which tends to produce rather unattractive gemstone names. But bronzite is luckier than most. It is actually a form of weathered enstatite. Its name comes from its sub-metallic lustre due to its iron content.
