Lavender in Bloom

About this design:

I love the artisans who create beads with polymer clay. I wanted to make a special bracelet for a friend. I found this soft, delicate, and striking
bead. Alyssa told me her favorite color is purple. I couldn't find a nice focal to work with in deep purple. I went to the next best color...lavender.


The focal is polymer clay as I embellished it by adding the tiny rhinestone in the center of the flower. I used tiny 4mm grape crystal glass beads, 6mm druk lavender round glass beads, 6mm clear crystal glass beads. The 6mm rondelle beads are gemstones...Angelite. Everything else is done with silver findings and I like to use the tube clasp.
