I loved the  nautral cut and color of these olivine nuggets , but couldn't find bead cap or accent bead that seemed fitting ....so I went from the gut and sort of organically wrapped the top, making a "nested" effect .  Sometimes simplicity is just best , I guess :-) Dontcha just love when your brain surprises even you ??







Thanks for looking :-)

These definitely have a great organic shape. When I first saw the thumbnail I read it visually as some sort of an insect sculpture.

*laughs*

Is there any other way than making it up as you go along??? Heh. Even when I try to plan my projects, they seem to grow in their own directions...

I like the acorn effect. Would you mind if I adopted it?

Cool, thanks! Smiley I have some chunky leopard jasper beads that NEED bronze acorn caps. And some green aventurine in a similar cut to your olivine beads.

I finally figured out what those remind me of - have you ever seen Kathy Frey's work? http://kathyfrey.com/ She has a book out now that I am currently visiting at the bookstore.
