I thought the moonstone and matte hematite would be perfect in a space theme and goes rather well with Ohm Beads UFO, Luna, Redbalifrog Star Stoppers on a Trollbeads Twisted bangle.
Sticks and Stones Sodalite and Hematite goes really well with Trollbeads Wisdom, seen here is also Trollbeads Three Flowers, and Trinity on a Trollbeads Twisted bangles with Redbalifrog Star Stoppers.
The Matte Amazonite Wheels are my favorite. I love the matte finish and what they bring to a composition. Here I’ve used the Sticks and Stones Matte Amazonite Wheels, Amazonite faceted, and Chrysoprase, Along with Trollbeads Daisy, Apple Blossoms and Redbalifrog Frangipani Stoppers on a Trollbeads Twisted Bangle.
The Sticks and Stones Hematite go really well with the Ohm Beads Stony and Rawr Glass seen here in this magical composition with Ohm Beads My Precious Skat too, Magic Frog, Dirty Magic, and Luna on a Trollbeads Foxtail bracelet with the Savoy Knot Lock.
