Q&A with HeikeK

edith.aub6667384 asked:
La labradorite est-elle colle ?
HeikeK answered:
I'm so sorry, edith, my French is horrible. Do you ask whether the labradorite is glued on? It isn't. It's a coin bead. I used two of Perri Jackson's (ShaktipajDesigns) tutorials. With this one you can learn how to attach the bead: https://www.etsy.com/listing/111132848/classic-aegean-coiled-wire-bangle. And this one is for the braid: https://www.etsy.com/listing/116027762/soutache-braid-coiled-copper-wire.

Absolutely stunning! The Labradorite is mesmerizing as well! I have never found one quite like it.. What a special gift for someone who must be an amazing friend. =^..^=
HeikeK answered:
Thank you, Heather! It was a gift for a very dear American friend. We both love copper and labradorite. The stone was the best bead from a full strand of coin beads. By now I consider myself lucky when I find 5 or 6 beautiful labradorite beads in a strand of not so beautiful ones.
