    A true winter beauty! Reminds me of the night my friend and I walked a mile home at -20 degree temps. I would have much preferred your bracelet over that walk.

    I’m trying to figure out which is the indigo pebble but I am not sure. But all the beads are beauties. The darkness of winter and the starlit winter sky. Lovely bracelet.

    I’ll take that hot cup of tea on this cold, chilly night! I love the little teapot toggle! The deep blues & speckled lentils really do portray the snowy scene on the lampwork bead. I enjoy jewelry that pulls you into a place far, far away. Great work GZ!

    K.Ralston, the Indigo Pebble is the big lone one, on the left of the snowflake – it’s just the one! (hope this helps!)

    Robin, sorry for not answering your question about the middle row, I forgot and had to go hunting for it again! It’s a Czech glass called – blue suede shoes twisted triangles….if you’re even still interested :)
