Malachite is one of my favourite gemstones. I love the swirly, sixties vibe it conveys and the stunning range of green tones in every piece. In this Chips’n’Mags bracelet I have tried to give the random chips a sense of order by introducing Long Magatama beads, all threaded in the same direction. A splash of silver here and there along the braid links up with the silver in the clasp and braid ends. The mags also have the advantage of making the chips go a little bit further.
Further details on how to make this bracelet, as well as other design ideas and advice can be found in the new Gemstone section on this website.
