Blue Caramel Swirl

About this design:

Old Bead lady here in the house !!!!
Greetings to all of you very talented
beading enthusiasts. I've been away from creating I'm back. Well, let's get started. I have these beautiful polymer focal beads that I needed to address. I love wearing bracelets the most. Never fully realized just how big my stash has gotten in a year's time. So I delved into it and made this bracelet.


The focal piece is the polymer clay bead with lush swirled colors of blue, green and caramel. I used blue faceted crystal rondelle beads. The dark green oblong glass with a pearl finish to complement the green in the focal. The smaller pillow shaped are gemstones as I'm not sure as to what they are. Silver corrugated spacer beads to finish the design.

    This is my fav,because there’s ORANGE!!
    I can see you thought long and hard over the beads to compliment the focal. Well done!
    I think the orange beads may be Red Aventurine,or maybe Candy Jade?
    It’s just beautiful!
