About this design:

It's been a long time since I've added any designs on LB. Life has been some what complicated, thank goodness for beading.
This bracelet reminds me of the water in St. Thomas BVI. I am hoping to go back next winter


Turquoise czech swirly beads, silver plated charms, swarovski crystals and seed beads.

    Beautiful. Beading helps me escape too.

    The light green beads def looks like the water in St Thomas. Meghan’s (sp) Bay was spectacular.

    Karen, I noticed you used a spiral bead in your bead-u-tiful bracelet. The spiral is a symbol of continuous movement and what is life but a constant journey. Some days are diamonds(the good ones!) and some days are stones (the bad ones). But don’t forget that diamonds can cut through just about anything. So always hold the good days close like a bright light to guide you through the darker days. Plus beads are always the silver lining, right?
