Rustic Turquoise and African Trade Bead Bracelet with Horse Button


About this design:

This is probably one of my favorite bracelets. It is my all time fave color scheme: green turquoise and the brick red color of the red "green heart" trade beads. I love the combination of all the components and how rustic it looks.

Components:

Green turquoise heishi, small turquoise nuggets, amber, hessonite garnet, Hill Tribe and Bali silver spacers, and Venetian trade beads. The trade beads include chevrons and red "green hearts" and a really beautiful millefiori bead. I love the colors of this bead, which are a pale green background with brick red and black "eyes". A sterling silver artisan horse button is the closure. I LOVE this subtle leather which I bought from Lima Beads.
