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.
