While shopping for beads online the other night, I came upon the most lovely little lampwork strawberries, and knew I had to make myself a summer strawberry bracelet. After making mine, I whipped up a second one for my shop.
The beads include lampwork glass strawberries, AB glass, Swarovski crystal, dyed green river shell leaves, Czech glass flowers, green turquoise stars, and faceted jade hearts. I'm very pleased with how they came out. All in all, a subtle and more grown-up nod to my love of the Strawberry Shortcake of my childhood.
