Autumn Jewellery

My jewellery making has now taken on an autumnal twist as I feel drawn towards warm, golden, earthy colours.  This bracelet is made from mookaite nuggets.  This is a wonderful looking type of jasper, only found in Australia and, not only that, it is only found in a specific area of Australia (Mooka Creek in Western Australia).  It is actually a sedimentary rock which has been formed from the skeletal remains of tiny creatures deposited in an ancient sea a long, long, long, long time ago.

After I made the bracelet, I took it down to the beach to photograph it and was amazed at how many colours from the pebbles on the beach could also be seen within the bracelet.

This bracelet is now for sale in my online shop at Folksy
