Beads By The Beach
Posted by Erin to Articles
Here’s a quick peek at what I’ve been up to with my suitcase full of beads over the last few days.



I’ve been dying to take both Fancy Jasper and Blood Quartz into color-graduated, long, knotted pieces, and I finally got the chance to do it.





I’m planning to try the same thing with Golden Blood Quartz when I get home.

I brought down tons of wood beads, and I paired White Wood with Matte Star Cut Aquamarine, Peach Moonstone and Rose Gold Plated Hematite. I loved combining the heavier stones with lightweight wood.




More beads by the beach pictures will follow on Facebook and Instagram over the next 10 days. If you need a vicarious break, our social media might be just what you need.

Erin, Dakota Stones
