This bracelet combines unique Dakota Stones gemstone shapes effortlessly. Cynthia alternated using long chip beads with small heishi spacers. The vibrant color of the spacers ensures they still stand out when used with the larger beads and provide a fun contrast. Cynthia made this bracelet during a Facebook Live Design Challenge. Watch her make this piece and other designs here.
