Lakeside Bracelet

About this design:

I wanted to use these beautiful blue stones in something, so I created this bracelet. The color scheme reminds me of a blue lake and the rocks around it.

    This reminds me of East and West Lake Okoboji in NW Iowa. We used to spend several weekends over the summer there with friends. I put it in my favs for the memories.

    This is so beautiful! I agree it reminds me of a lake and rocks, for me it is the glacial lakes we have in Colorado. So pretty and soothing! I added this beauty to my favs :)
