November Bracelets

About this design:

November 21st is my Mom's and my friend's daughter's birthday. Made them both birthstone bracelets. Both are wrap. Marina's 7 times for a double necklace also. Mom's only twice. Both use 2 different colors of glass pearls and topaz crystals. Both are braided. Marina's on hemp. Mom's on S-Lon...her's is braided and knotted. Both have a loop and button closure. Marina's has a brass button that was my Grandmother's. Mom's a pretty tortoise flower. Mom's also.has bronze seed beads beaded into loop closure. Both have little topaz crystal charm dangles.

Hoping these are my last sideways photos. Last ones on my gallery I believe.


Marina's: brown hemp. Small white glass pearls. Small brown glass pearls. Small topaz crystals. Medium topaz crystals. Brass beads. 1 topaz crystal charm dangle. 1 brown pearl dangle. Brass antique button. Mom's: brown S-Lon. Large champagne glass pearls. Large brown glass pearls. Large topaz crystals. 2 crystal topaz charm dangles. Flower shaped tortoiseshell look button.

    I like both bracelets. The tortoise shell and metal elements in Mom’s are striking, while the colors are extra nice in Marina’s.

    Thank you. Marina’s actually looks much better in person. It just didn’t photograph that well. The cord looks faded in the pic. I also gave her little drop earrings that I didn’t take a picture of.
