I've been having more fun with my new beads. I created these lovelies with the cardamom (?) cut fluorite briolettes. I can't find any reference to this cut online, so I think that gem dealer may have made it up! We're just going to call it a marquis cut, k?
Anyway, I wrapped them and suspended them from some of my fine silver fused circles. After fusing the circles, I hammered them flat and patterned them with little circles. I think it's kinda cute.
The only bad part about those fluorite briolettes is that those 2 pictured above is one of only 2 pairs I was able to get from that strand. The rest don't seem to be close enough matches to make pairs. The rest are destined to become necklaces. Oh well.
