    The band so wonderfully echoes the focal piece. This bracelet reminds me of the way the pastel colors of a setting sun reflect off a rocky beach.

    Love how you not only matched the colors in your focal piece, but your bead choice mimics the same soft round pebble effect. Your talent took a great focal piece and made it fantastic! Stunning!
