Millefiori and Silver


About this design:

Awhile back I was browsing in my local
bead shop. I spotted these really neat
Millefiori beads. Also found next to them these tiny glass spacers in the colors that matched. So I purchased them with intentions of making myself a bracelet. A dear friend caught site of it and asked if I would make her one. Since these beads are becoming just a bit harder to find; I redesigned it especially for her.

Components:

Small red Millefiori beads with a pattern using a combination of blue and white. Three tier bracelet with tiny silver three hole spacers in between the glass beads. Very tiny white seed beads used within the middle layer giving a little definition between the red ones. Shiny silver metal beads are the center focal point and on the ends. A coordinated finished look is what I was going after here. I like using the tube clasp as it seems to work the best.
