Turquoise Bubbles

About this design:

This bracelet was inspired by this hand made copper chain I picked up in the LB clearance. Again it was a bit bigger than I expected but it was the perfect size to frame these beautiful turquoise nuggets. The clasp was made with the ring I had to cut to get the length...nothing wasted!


Hand made copper chain, turquoise nuggets, 22 gauge silver plated wire.
