My inspiration for making this bracelet was the gorgeous cobalt and white handmade glass center bead. Cobalt blue is a strong color and very often when I use strong colors, I use them with other strong colors capable of holding their own in the situation. This time, I choose a little differently. I did select one other vividly colored bead – the little blue/green/white African Trade millefiori bead and then began softening the colors a bit by adding turquoise.
As you move further towards the back of the bracelet, the colors soften even more – creamy coral beads, a bit of shell, a striped bead in soft turquoise, red and green, two labradorite beads. Tiny bits of black and a single crystal add punctuation.
