Jazzy Blues bracelet

About this design:

I love beads and especially the handmade focal glass lampwork ones.
A nice focal can work your creativity
and have something very beautiful. I found this really nice focal done in swirly blues and greens. Bracelets are my thing. I can't wear earrings as my earlobes seem to be or have an allergic reaction. I live in Arizona where right now the temp is averaging around 115. Necklaces..not gonna happen on me. Bracelets I can make to go with my attire just nicely.


The lampwork glass focal is the star attraction. I had in my bead stash these awesome Czech Iris Picasso 6mm beads that blend with the focal. I also had these green rectangle beads that is also found on the focal. Photos just don't show it as well. I wanted to express the color of what that focal had. I used silver spacer bars to hold it together with a silver tube clasp.

    Gorgeous bracelet – - and I know what you mean about not wearing necklaces in the summer in Arizona ! Have visited there when the temps were too hot to even think about going outside – - -

    I’m torn between this one and the purple. Both are my favs, but I think I’ll put all of your designs in my favorites! I love that focal!
