Hematite Hour Glass

This is an interesting shaped hematite bead! It is about an inch or so in length and very shiny! I like using hematite in jewelry with lots of black beads. Its mirror-like shiny quality is a nice contrast.

Because of its size, it would work well as a focal bead on a bracelet. It has sort of an industrial look about it. Mixing it with black rubber tubing and some "hardware" type of beads would be a lot of fun. It would look great with all of the heavy dark clothing and boots that everyone is wearing right now.

Let me know if you have ever used these before or have some other interesting ideas.

Have a good one!!

That's cool. It would look really neat with some small washers.
