Components: One 20 mm ornate Zola metal bead in silver as my focal. Blue denim colored dyed quartz nuggets / chips. I stung this bracelet using my beading wire and I doubled it for security of both the gemstone chips and the Zola coin bead.

I finished my ends by using 5 mm round silver plated metal beads connected with my two hole toggle and clasp. Silver components used such as wire, wire guardians, crimp covers. The toggle and clasp is a basic rope design.
