Red And Orange Bead Bracelet With Carnelian

Image Description
This unique and fiery toned bracelet features brilliant orange floral beads and juicy carnelian stones. The big round beads are made by my hands from my own polymer clay cane work. I paired them with copper chain, red coral chips, and a variety of richly colored glass beads as well. The effect is hot. Such is the medley of shapes and bold hues that it brings to mind chili peppers and cayenne. This bracelet is composed of three layers that each have dangling bead charms. One is a copper colored chain, one is nylon coated jewelry wire, and one is a handmade chain of red coral and glass. Amongst the assorted beads are some interesting and attractively cut glass and crystal pieces. I also used a few bits of brown cats eye and mother of pearl for a subtle neutral. The pretty little carnelian beads stand out as the longest parts and give the bracelet a lacy look around the edges. The bracelet fastens with a lobster claw closure and measures 7.5 to 10 inches-adjustable between those dimensions. The chain is a segment of brass jump rings trimmed with orange glass seed beads.
