My second attempt with the abalone shell beads was much more successful! I paired the shell beads with large iridescent beads and multi-colored seed beads to create this bracelet.
I've worn this bracelet more than any other, since it goes with virtually everything I own. It is especially suited to all the black, white, and gray in my closet. The nice thing about using iridescent beads is that you can wear them with gold OR silver.
