Multi-Strand Bracelet with Blue Sky Jasper Gemstone Beads, Antiqued Sterling Silver Beads and Swarovski® Crystal Beads

by Susanne Kathol, Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®

Say hello to blue skies when you wrap your wrist in multiple strands of blue sky jasper gemstone beads. Blue sky jasper has an appealing color combination of a distinctive sky blue and terracotta red-brown and the pairing with antiqued sterling silver bumpy rondelle beads is stunning.

Use a twisted beading needle to create string the Accu-Flex beading wire through the beads to create the visually stimulating crossover design. The scarabaeus green Swarovski crystal beads have a beetle-like glow that blends well with the blue sky jasper beads.

Bracelets are a great choice for dressing up any look. Create this bracelet to add to jewelry lines and your own fashion wardrobe for style success.
