The idea for this bracelet started with the center component – a black and white enamel link.
I wanted to create a design that really complemented it and showed it off. Initially I thought I would make a bracelet with both black and white beads; the enamel link said otherwise. Any other white bead I tried to introduce competed with it. I didn’t want the rest of the beads to be all black, it just wouldn’t be visually interesting enough. So, I added interest with lustrous touches of crystal and hematite. The black and white enamel link is happy and I am happy.
