Touches of Native Arizona

About this design:

While I was shopping at Michael's I discovered these fantastic bracelet spacers. I recently moved to Arizona.
I thought to make myself some jewelry inspired by what I have seen with regards to two major conponents: turquoise and silver.


These beautiful spacer beads are two-holed for bracelets. I had a string of Arizona turquoise which had greenish blueish with brown inclusions. Perfect for what I was wanting to create. Added tiny three holed spacer bars to give the bracelet more silver keeping with the design of the spacer beads. WOW !! I just love wearing this and have gotten compliments.

    Very nice. I noticed M’s had some new bracelet spacers….But you really complimented these with your turquoise and brown beads.

    Nice. You certainly captured the native American look. Did you use memory wire? You can’t lose when you pair turquoise with silver

    I love this bracelet, the Southwestern designs are some of my favorites. I have also done some with copper accents instead of silver.

    To S Moyers,
    No, I didn’t use memory wire. I used regular stringing wire for jewelry….nylon coated bright silver jewelry wire. Thank you for your comment.
    I appreciated this. Bead happy !!!
