Designer: Carole Rodgers
Published: December 15, 2008
Technique: Stringing

Kyanite is a lovely, lustrous mineral. Varying from blue to green with pearly white streaks, it looks especially good with denim! This simple bracelet and earring set matches the Blue Jean Queen necklace on page 14 of the January-February 2009 issue of Step by Step Beads. In addition to kyanite beads, you'll need faceted round hematite beads, silver round beads, split rings, Bali silver daisy spacers, clamshell bead tips, crimp beads, and a silver toggle clasp to complete this "wear with everything" jewelry design.

About the designer: Carole Rodgers is an internationally known designer, teacher, and author for twenty-two years, with a prior career in art education and art therapy. She is the author of ninety-nine pattern leaflets, hundreds of magazine articles, and two full-length beading books, Beaded Jewelry with Found Objects and Beading Basics. Carole has been a contributor to Step by Step Beads before and is presently writing a sequel to Beading Basics.

I love this set, but I can't afford this kind of bead. I have downloaded the pattern anyways, and I'll be trying it with similiar, cheaper beads! Thanks for sharing your talents!

I have searched and searched for the flat oval 18x13mm and flat round 8mm kyanite beads... I am new to beading and even googled them to no avial, so, Carol, where does one buy the beads?
