About this design:

This is the best name I could come up with after a brain numbing week at work.

I was searching for a silver clasp to finish off the bracelet and was happy to find the turquoise colored clasp in my stash. Adds a bit more pizzaz I think.

I may add 2 more strands to 'fill up' the bracelet but this is it for now.

Components:

turquoise, coral seed bead mix, pewter flower beads and turquoise clasp.

    Really nice and I LOVE the clasp, too!
    Last year I made a simple, five-strand bracelet with what I think is a similar seed bead mixture that you have used in your beautiful bracelet. I added some smaller silver/pewter beads and spacers (not as fancy as your pretty flower ones); clasp was one of those five-strand slider types (whatever they’re called). Was my first sale ever :)

    Thank you Gail and Lois.

    Lois – our bracelets sound similar ;) .
    The seed bead mix is Miyuki Multi Bead Mix, Turquoise and Coral. I’ve been a bit lazy listing components. The flower beads were 50% off. Why didn’t I order more? ha ha

    These are colors I love and you’ve done them proud ! That clasp is indeed awesome – - the bracelet works well this way, but think it would also be great with the additional two strands. Great design !
