As you know from my previous post, I was gifted some gorgeous Burmese ruby and apatite beads. It was fun coming up with something for them. I was able to make two (2) necklace and earring sets with the ruby and apatite beads.
The first necklace and earring set I did with just the 2 stones and accented with Sterling silver tubes and spacers. I finished the necklace with a sterling silver 's' clasp. This first set I will most likely list in my Etsy shop soon. Let me know what you think!
And here is the second set I did. I used some hematite tubes for spacers and just a bit of contrast in the piece. Being the stones were gifted to me, I believe I will keep this set for myself. Can't ever have too much jewelry in my opinion.
I finished the necklace with a handmade clasp I created with a couple sterling silver headpins.
I think the rubies and apatite beads look really good in both pieces.
Do you like one over the other? Leave a comment and let me know.
