Colorful Stones

I found a great bag of mixed stones during an unplanned trip to Hobby Lobby today and the best part was they were 50% off! There were so many great stone beads in the bag I might even have bought it if it wasn't on sale! Needless to say, for the next few days I'll be sharing them with you here.

I thought these four stones were so cute and a nice mix of colors in the same shape, they would be fun to design a cute summery bracelet around. Rather than stringing, I'm thinking about making each of the stones a sort of focal bead among colorful crystals on its own wire segment with loops on each end. I'd love to find a pearl that would work well between each of the segments.

I was hoping to work on it tonight, but spent a bit of time moving beads into a few new containers that were also on sale today.

Best wishes for a nice 4 day work week!
