Yes, I can!

Last bracelet using the porcelain focals. I really love the messages from these pieces and this one says it all! I like reminders that pull me...
Components: Lots of Czech hibiscus flowers in 7mm, 9mm and larger. Varied sizes of Czech fire polished rondelles 3mmx5mm, 5mmx7mm and 6mmx9mm. Czech glass faceted rounds and I love the ones that are 4mm with a copper and picasso finish but also the 6mm yellow picasso and the turquoise 6mm matte finished ones, too. I see some 5mm melons and the chandelier cut 9mm, too. There is a single teardrop shape Czech glass in turquoise, too. And, the Greek Bronze cross pendant bead. All of them from LB, I think, along with the Irish Waxed Linen. The focal, clasp, and chain are from other places at other times. I think the chain was in my stash waiting for these focals.
