I thought I'd show you my Amber and Amethyst Summer Stones Bracelet today.
I loved the Trollbeads Limited Edition Summer Stones Collection when it was released last May and it consumed most of my bead fund for a Trollbead Meet (and some)! Whilst the photo below shows the final tally of what I picked up all together last year - I *always* intended to pick up some more when I had the funds, if there were any left of course!

You can still find some of the other stones around, however the amethysts tended to disappear fairly swiftly as they were very popular at the time. I was really pleased to stumble across a 4th amethyst preloved from another collector up for sale.
I immediately wanted to use all four together and decided to pair them with a variety of amber beads and some silvers to make a new bracelet.
The focal bead changed quite a few times before I finally settled on my Baby Dragon splitter bead which is more usually seen on my Pearl Fantasy Necklace but has since migrated to this bracelet for the weekend, and er, possibly a bit longer...
A friend has pointed out how awesome a nice faceted amethyst would look here as a focal... I don't have one yet (although I've been looking for the right one for a very long time), so I'm just going to push that up the To Do List a little higher! Now should that come before or after my Boiler Replacements???
