Gemstone Bolo Tie Slides ~ Stone Variety and Custom Cut Designs


a cafe mom's pic

Today I decided to post about bola or also known as bolo tie slides.
There are many varieties available. I learned this very quickly when I started
creating jewelry. I am going to share my knowledge of our gemstone bolo ties.
  I will have photos of actual pieces we   custom cut. This will help you understand the vast possibilities of colors ,styles, cuts and different types of gemstones.    (Picture above is our Texas Plume Moss Agate Slide)


 
 

 I have to warn you, I am not the best at perfect sentences etc... I love to write and create and sometimes ideas and thoughts go faster than expected :) I get so interested in sharing thoughts and ideas that the formality of writing tends to break my train of thought. If you can look beyond this or it doesn't bother you then we're in great shape to have a Blogging good time :)


I also hope those that want to comment (clean material please, I am blogging and ahem, it is a children friendly site!) Please do so. Want to share your articles, tips. expertise or blog about Positively good things to share.You can email me or post your comments etc... Our blogs are meant to share a great variety of subjects and content! ex (Some days are just blogging about life and what comes to mind that day )

OKAY OKAY ENOUGH OF THAT ALREADY!


Let's take a look at bolo slides in purple: amethyst, plume moss jasper, dendritic.. lavender different rocks and patterns of purples and amethyst.Each one creates a unique piece of art or jewelry.


This happens when you use different amethyst rocks. Amethyst with inclusions and layers of mixed minerals, your specific cuts of slabs. The angle or direction you cut your rock and thickness of your slab also contributes how
your jewelry
or art will look when finished going through the lapidary process
.

here are some photos to give you an idea of
what I am trying to explain :)

Both bolo tie slides are cut from Same Amethyst Rough Rock , different slabs, different cut at angles though
