Turquoise, Trade Beads, Spiney Oyster and Coral Bracelet


About this design:

I love the contrast of the beautiful blue turquoise against the orange and red beads. I love the trade beads and I love the leather, which I bought here!

Components:

Kingman turquoise heishi, orange spiney oyster, red sponge coral, Hill Tribe silver beads, and trade beads. The trade beads include a gorgeous millefiori bead 20mm long, a king bead and a French cross bead. I think the two later beads may be new, but the millefiori is about 100 years old. The closure is a sterling silver and turquoise button I bought at a local bead store.
