My mother asked me to make some jewelry for a family friend who had done many years of service in our church. Mom and I picked out the beads together and after a few hours I had these ready just in time. I took a quick photo before running out the door for delivery.
The bracelet is kumihimo weaving, with coral and mother of pearl round beads and turquoise and silver Czech glass seed beads. I also got to try out wire shaping and hammering, as well as reaming beads for thicker wire. I think everyone was happy with the result. I named it Tidal Pool for the bright tropical colors and the aquatic source of the beads.
