Bees and Blossoms

Modern Vintage is probably the hottest rising jewelry trend these days. Mixing old items or vintage-inspired components with new beads that still give a design a feeling of an era gone by. Although, I understand the appeal of vintage items (and hunting for them), I'm not that into actual old things myself. I do however, like modern, vintage-inspired jewelry! There's a feminine, romantic feeling to vintage jewelry that really appeals to me. I don't think I've met a jewelry style I didn't like, so I had to give it a try. Here's my take on modern vintage style: A sweet Spring charm bracelet called Bees & Blossoms.
Bees & Blossoms

I wanted the multiple strands of Ceylon seed beads to look like strands of tiny strung pearls. I used an antique brass filigree button for the closure. I love the sweetness of these antique brass charms that dance around the entire bracelet. Of course, the design would not be complete without this flower stoneware art bead by Golem Design Studio. I want to thank Artbeads.com for the supplies and the inspiration to make this piece. Enjoy!
