Brown and Teal Heart Charm Bracelet with Jasper and Shells Red Copper
The main focus of this bracelet is the series of caramel brown swirled hearts with tiny teal blue flowers and dots. These lampwork beads have been created with clear glass spacer beads with deep teal and aqua cores. All of these lovely glass beads are the creation of a great glass studio in Las Vegas that I discovered. They have provided me with a lot of pretty beads for my jewelry creations. I wanted to show off these wonderful colored beads, so I paired them with beautifully patterned picture jasper beads in drum shape. The gorgeous browns are swirled throughout the beads to the point where they create their own images of the desert.
Because there are so many pretty teal dots on the hearts, I decided to continue with the teal theme and add some blue dyed stone nuggets in light blue. More shell beads were used to give a deeper teal to the design. They are 10mm aqua teal shell beads.
The deep blues and browns needed a lot of extra shine, so I added Swarovski crystal bicones in copper and aqua with an aurora borealis coating that give those crystals an iridescent shine. The beads have all been strung on red copper with a metallic baby blue seed bead to hold them into place. Some of the glass beads have been capped with floral red copper caps.
All the beads have been wired to a red copper - antique copper - chain with a lobster clasp for clipping to the right size to fit your wrist. The bracelet is approximately 7 1/2 inches in length, but due to the design, it can be clipped shorter for a smaller wrist. The dangling beads will create an accent to the overall design of the bracelet.
This bracelet is heavy because of the glass and stone beads.
