About this design:

I like to wear a lot of bracelets ! So, this is a 2-row bracelet of peacock rice pearls of a large size with a smaller size the same colour with added pillow-shaped faceted amethyst. I must say, that wire wrapping each bead this way does take a while to make ! It has a sterling silver heart-shaped toggle clasp.

Components:

Amethyst, peacock rice pearls, sterling silver

    Beautiful work,and the individual wraps give it such an earthy look,with a lot of movement.
    The Amethyst beads are exquisite. Perfect combo of shapes and colors.

    Well worth the effort to do the individual wire wraps – - the end result is luscious.

    Those colors are my favorites … wire wrapping like that does take time but allows each bead to be ‘seen’. Love it! SLS
