Artifact Bracelet


About this design:

I found some marvelous beads that have Picasso finish overlaid on cane glass segments so that they look like something very old, discovered in desert sands.

No, I haven't closed off the second loop, b/c I'm thinking of replacing the copper heishe with some that are more rustic.... but I couldn't wait to share it with you!

Components:

Glass beads, African Turquoise, Red Jasper, copper heishe, memory wire.
