Ocean Depths Bracelet
The beads and colors of this bracelet remind me of the ocean. The sea is one of my favorite themes and colors to work around! I can just imagine the sunlight filtering through the blue waters and a school of silver fish swimming among a forest of kelp.
I made time for a little beading session over the weekend. It ended up being a work of favorites! I pulled out these African recycled glass beads from my stash. These have become a favorite as of late. I got them at a local bead shop. I love the color, the matte finish and the organic shape of them. They remind me of sea glass, which I just LOVE!!! I want to start adding some of my favorite art beads to my work, so I pulled out this Round Rabbit ceramic button that I've been hording...err... holding onto for a while. :) Nancy of Round Rabbit has been a favorite ceramic artist and jewelry designer for a long time! The blue and green button compliment the beads so well! Another all-time favorite is Hill Tribe Silver! I'm absolutely in love with Thai silver! I wire-wrapped a few silver tube beads with seed bead accents for the dangles. Then, I hand knotted everything up onto some matching blue and green waxed linen cord, of course another favorite material that I love to work with!!!
