This is a bracelet/necklace set I made with beads found on my first visit (I will return!) to a local bead store. I loved the rich Fall colors of these dyed stone beads and added a few interesting wooden beads I had. I like the look.

Tribal Set

While at my favorite Las Cruces bead store, I found these very tribal-looking beads and bought three strands of them that I thought would look good together. Yesterday was the day I made them into this set.

I am moving away from the pastel colors into the more Fall/Winter colors now that it is finally cooling off here on the desert.

I have been making lots of jewelry but it seems I am not taking the photos of them. Well, today was a day of experimentation so I will show this selection now. I have been working a lot in copper and these are a few pieces I tested out aging in Liver of Sulfur (I know, a disgusting sound for a simple solution). I will next do some more polishing of these, but I do like the aged look of them, especially for the pieces with lots of nooks and crannies for the dark to settle into.

I'll get the camera out more frequently now and keep up with the blog better, I promise.
