Here is another one of my recent jewelry sets, featuring  a mixture of various colors of tiger eye stone: the traditional golden, plus blue and red. I recently discovered the blue tiger eye at a gem show, and I have discovered that I like working with it even better than the standard golden color. Its chatoyancy is more subtle, only shifting its color in the brightest lights. But the elegance of the deep blue color is unsurpassed. I’m surprised I haven’t seen more jewelry makers take advantage of this amazing stone.

The yellow accent beads are agate, and a few silver beads and wire have been added for additional shine.
