charcoal/picasso yellow bracelet

About this design:

I bought some lovely yellow/Picasso Czech glass beads, thought they would go well w/the charcoal shell pearls from LB.

One picture (hanging in the window) shows the light glowing through the pansy bead.

I also made a pair of coordinating earrings using the shell pearls, sterling beads, and gunmetal 3mm rounds.

I can't think if a cool name for this... open to suggestions....


Shell pearls (12mm), Czech glass pansy & rivolis, gunmetal finish rounds & toggle clasp.

    Very nice combination. The charcoal looks great with gunmetal. Don’t you LOVE the shell pearls from Lima?
