Cool Waves

About this design:

I've been longing for the Florida coast again, so I created this bracelet to showcase the beautiful ocean colors that I remember so fondly.


Czech glass jade ammonite, Oasis Czech glass chandelier cut, stormy blue pearls, various Toho seed beads, Vintaj charm, chain and findings and Big Kick made starfish charm embellished with Vintaj patinas, most all from LB.

    Angela, this bracelet is really cool. I’ve been drooling over that ammonite bead since it first made it’s appearance at LB. The colors, the elements, the title, yes! I live in the desert and it’s the middle of summer but I think just wearing this bracelet would cool me off. Love it :)

    So beachy beautiful. Love your little starfish embossed circle next to the starfish charm. It looks so much like you went beachcombing & found the makings of a bracelet.

    Angela, this is exactly the kind of look I always try for. :) I keep coming back for a look and I am just mesmerized. May I use and tweak you idea? Promise-no exact copies. :)

    Really nice! Not to create more competition, but you should think about entering the next design challenge over at Vintaj too. It’s ocean/beach themed.
