Color Me Thankful

About this design:

A fringe type, or cha-cha bracelet. Took me awhile, but I'm happy with it. It kind of goes with the Season. :)


Handmade polymer clay beads, seed beads, Swarovski crystals, all strung with fireline. Closure is an antique brass toggle clasp.

    This is just wonderful. I can imagine how long it took to do, and the result is fabulous. Love all the warm tones, but the splashes of pink are inspired.
