Driftwood ~ Meet Tourmaline

A whole new crop of driftwood specimens arrived at my doorstep last night compliments of my friend and partner-in-beaded-crime, Jennifer.  She recently and quite spontaneously decided that we needed more driftwood inspiration and hopped-a-plane for the Oregon coast...my hero!  Tourmaline is said to enhance understanding, increase self-confidence and amplify psychic energies...bring it on.  Who knew multi-colored tourmaline on driftwood would look so smashing?! The dragonfly was added as a custom touch for a client.

Driftwood Gallery: Apatite ~ Stone of Acceptance

This faceted aqua colored gem perfectly brightens a sea-washed piece of driftwood.  They call apatite the "stone of acceptance".  Ok, no problem, I accept!  It's Friday and I chose to highlight my latest driftwood necklace creation with a pretty pink background.  Happy colors, happy day.  Cheers!

Driftwood Gallery: More Bracelets!

Maybe it is the full moon or maybe I have just found a serious creative zone but I literally cannot stop making these bracelets.  Here are three more for your viewing pleasure.  From top to bottom: Turquoise seed beads, Appetite, Aquamarine.  Oh what a happy little stack of bracelets!
