Wine Country bracelet


About this design:

Had vineyards on my mind after remembering a lovely trip to the New Clarvaux Abbey/winery in Vina, CA from last Fall.

The "grape" bunches were a little tricky to get hanging right at first. I ended up using two jump rings attached to a central ring with different length pins to get it right.

Components:

6mm raw ruby beads, antique brass fancy leaf chain, swirly toggle, antique brass pins.

    Love this bracelet! I love earthy tones and this is right up my alley. I also bought this leaf link chain but haven’t had a chance to use it yet. You did a wonderful job.

    Before I read your inspiration, I looked at the piece and thought, it reminds me of berries on a vine. You definitely captured your inspiration, the bracelet is lovely.
