 The Process Explained by Herbal Bones

💗"For my chokers, I start with a sketch. Where I brainstorm ideas and create dreams and goals. Once I'm comfortable with my blueprint, the hands-on process starts." - Sami, Herbal Bones

💗"The wrapping of the beads for the choker is the quickest and easiest part of the whole thing, after some fine tuning the chains are finished. " - Sami, Herbal Bones

💗"Being so new to wire craft and jewelry crafting, I was scared I wouldn't be able to do these beads justice. So I had a lot of re-do's ahead of me. And I mean a lot! I just couldn't settle!! So after 3 attempts for the centerpiece and fastening the large set of aurora opals, and 3 more attempts on the water drop; things started to fit together." - Sami, Herbal Bones

💗"From there I fashioned the .925 Sterling chain and the remaining 4mm aurora beads. You'll notice that my sketch and finished necklace are completely different. It doesn't stress me out in the least, in fact it's my favorite thing to use my sketches as more of a reference; rather than a plan." - Sami, Herbal Bones

💗"Thank you for reading about my process. The Aurora Opals are an amazing pink and a fan favorite!" - Sami, Herbal Bones
