Golden Tiger Eye by mailledragon Golden Tiger Eye by mailledragon
This is a bracelet and earring set I made to sell a while ago (but I still have it...); it is constructed in the byzantine pattern with some tigereye beads for interest. The bracelet has a tigereye chip on the end, and the earrings have a bit of byzantine chain with tigereye drops. You can really see the chatoyancy in the drops in this picture, but they still are so much better live!

Thanks for the compliment!

I actually have a couple of companies that I get my rings from; these came from Fire Mountain Gems, and they have different quality rings among the ones they sell. The best thing about them is their quantity discounts (hooray for bulk purchasing!).

If you make your own, I suggest using a metal rod for wrapping the wire around, as it's much more consistent in ring size that way. That's what I do when I do make my own. Jeweler's saws work wonderful for cutting, with a smooth edge and very little wire waste.

What kind of metal did you use? Also, would you be willing to still sell it and if so how much?

I used gold plated rings for the piece--can't tell you for sure what the base metal is, but could be nickel (in case you're allergic). It is still available for sale--the price and particulars are on my etsy page: [link]. Let me know if you have any more questions, etc.
