Recycled Orange and Blue Glass

About this design:

Bright red orange sea glass (recycled), with red and blue recycled glass, terracotta, blue and red Indonesian glass form the body of this cheerful bracelet. I use striped pale yellow glass beads and seed beads as spacers. Lots of texture along with those bright colors really makes this an interesting one of a kind, tribal style piece. The hand forged copper toggle and hand of Fatima patinated copper charm lend an ethnic character as well.

    Thanks to all of you! I can’t take credit for the clasp. Maria Scott, of Sunstones on Etsy makes these amazing toggles.

    Definitely an eye catcher! and the details are great– love that patina’d charm on there. Is this on craft wire or ‘beading wire’? or a combo of both?
