About this design:

I saw both green and blue in the ceramic beads. I started with blue, gradiated to green, and then back to blue.


Ceramic beads, green aventurine (dark and light), millefiori, glass cubes, antique silver bead caps, silver palted spacers, & sterling silver clasp.

    True eye candy. This makes me want jump into the waters of the Caribbean! Lovely simple (but interesting) design. It’s fun to look at each bead individually.
