Carved Flower


About this design:

I bought the carved beads before Christmas and haven't done anything with them yet. So I decided to make one a bracelet focal. The round turquoise beads are from 1980's twist necklace.

Components:

Carved Floral Wood Bead. Turquoise Howlite Heishi. Turquoise Marbled Rounds. Wood Beads. Aqua ToHo Seed Beads. Brass Spacers. Brass Findings.

    I like it Deb! Is this going up for sale or is it a keeper? It would be a hard decision for me. I really like the mix of heishi and rounds. It adds texture and a little bit of Boho. :)
