One Special Element - Vintage Bead Bracelet

I loved this carved pendant...

But I knew I didn't want to use it as a pendant.

I think this bracelet illustrates how one special element can make very simple beads more interesting. These icy, crackle, vintage beads were sort of dead on their own...but with a special element I think they look so much more inviting and important.

I like the simplicity of the two colors and think that it makes the detail in the pendant stand out.

Sometimes using a larger piece as a focal item on a bracelet can open up new creative doors!
