Orca whales are known for their black and white markings. These colors look slick and smooth underwater and also glisten beautifully above the surface of the sea. The SuperDuo beads on display in this bracelet capture that look wonderfully. The SuperDuo Duet beads shimmer back and forth from black to white thanks to their special dual coating, while a diamond pattern at the center of the bracelet adds even more detail.
