About this design:

I saw this beautiful bracelet bead from Sweet Birch Designs and it reminded me of an ancient Mediterranean medallion. I just added some amazonite,copper and Czech beads to complement the color of the focal.

    Oh Del, this is absolutely lovely! The amazonite with the copper accents is great–and the multi-strands create the right balance for the focal. I love the sparkle and old-world look this has! Beautiful! :)

    The colors are so soothing, and you paired such perfect elements with the focal. The bell flowers on that gorgeous clasp are a nice touch. Such a stunning piece!

    Oh how beautiful! It looks like something that washed ashore,after a storm opened a mermaid’s trunk or something.
    (Oh,you know how I get). ;+)
    I love Amazonite,and you put a lot of thought into the other beads,I can tell. My eyes were drawn to the larger glass faceted beads. Just wonderful!!

    Hey Jess, it was very fast because I just picked up on the colors in the focal. Fast and easy – that’s what I like. Some pieces take me weeks or even months to complete and I really struggle. Go figure.

    Thanks all. I love the PC beads offered by artists on this site. I have purchased other PC beads, but I think the beads they make are the best. Keep up the wonderful work.
