One of our customers wanted to see our glass bamboo beads used in a design. I love how the bead inspired the rest of the colors in this bracelet.

Beautiful ocean blues mix with bronze and gold tones in this memory wire bracelet. The glass bamboo bead makes a wonderful focal and Czech glass Forget-Me-Not flower beads create cute spacers full of texture. You'll love the Gardanne Beads maple leaf charm dangling at the end of the bracelet. Cynthia made this piece live on Facebook. You can watch her make it along with a matching earring idea here.
