Purple & Blue Starfish bracelet


About this design:

This bracelet has a gorgeous silver clasp with a purple-blue Moonstone cab. I found some matching blue freshwater pearls, some plum purple Quartz briolettes, Amethyst rounds and some peacock colored Keishi pearls to go with it, and of course some silver.
The colors in this piece is wonderful, I think!

Components:

Freshwater pearls (midnight blue), Keishi pearls (Peacock), Quartz briolettes (plum purple), Amethyst rounds, Ox. silver spacers, Hill Tribe silver starfish and Sterling silver box clasp with a Moonstone cab.
