What designs or beads will make more unusual, bold gem stone jewelry?

Unique Gemstone Jewelry Design

If you want to create an unusual and unique piece of gemstone jewelry, you can consider either design or materials to make it stand out in a crowd. For example, a short, single-strand necklace with a clasp on the end would typically call for carefully arranged gemstones descending in size. Tweak this design and alternate your large and small beads with a fabulous center pendant. Or group gemstones of a more dominant color together and create a fading effect. An unusual material to use in your jewelry making would be Carnelian gemstones. Carnelian gemstones are bright red-orange to deep, brown-orange chalcedony. Small carnelian gem stone beads will appear more translucent; large beads will appear more opaque. They look terrific on a unique and bold piece of bead jewelry.
