Patriot bracelet

About this design:

I have made this bracelet for my neighbour's grand-daughter, who will be 16 soon and she wanted something in red, white and blue ! So...I have put some large hole pearls on some leather and added some garnet in two different sizes, along with Dumortierite blue ovals and a lapis drop and garnet round to add to the design. A large silver (plated) lobster clasp and silver (plated) oval to close. I thought teenagers like leather bracelets, so added that for extra design detail !


Lapis, Dumortierite, Garnet, pearls

    I love it! Leather and pearls looks so cool but it’s so hard to find the ones with big enough holes. :) And the stones are gorgeous!

    Yes, it’s hard to find pearls with large holes, but it seems Lima is doing some now, just hope they do more and some round pearls too – not just the rice shape!
