Blue Glass & Agate Bracelet


About this design:

I really love the colors in this but the drop beads are what I was looking to use. I got lucky and found some leftover lampwork and finally used one of my blue crazy lace I've had for quite some time. The flowers are a mossy green glass and the buds inside are turqoise dyed howlite.

Components:
