This post is a long time coming - its been sitting in the draft folder for awhile.
I got published in Jewelry Stringing, Spring 2016 issue! It is so fun to see my handmade items in a glossy magazine!
A dainty, Spring inspired bracelet. This bracelet was inspired by the magazine's 'Secret Garden' theme. That flower focal is a real flower bud encased in resin in a sterling silver bezel. I actually obtained another one of these focals and can't wait to use it. So pretty! The clasp is also sterling silver with a small garnet in the center. The sides of the bracelet are accented of different Czech glass beads - the silver ones with a matte AB finish and the crimson ones with a gold sheen to them.
The idea of wearing flowers is pretty awesome - a reminder of the Spring bounty of flowers (that will hopefully not shy away from this sudden cold weather in the Midwest!) .
