Mixing and matching different gemstone types is fun to do! Cynthia brought lapis lazuli beads and mixed impression jasper roundels together for an eclectic and colorful look. The varying shapes, colors and sizes create a playful style that can be worn with anything. The Dakota Stones gemstones certainly look marvelous with the TierraCast spacers and toggle clasp. Let this Gemstone Medley inspire you to add gemstone beads to your next design!
