This bracelet takes its black and gold color scheme from the striped and rippled seashell fragments. The beads are dark gold glass, and I collected all the shell fragments from my favorite beach, Fort Fisher in North Carolina. The wire wrappings are 24g wire and the closure is magnetic.







Thanks for checking it out!

wow this is pretty! i really like how you didn't keep it even with the glass beads on one side, and the craftsmanship of the wrapped shells is gorgeous.

Thank you! I've been working with the natural shells and fragments I find for about a year now... I'm very lucky to live on the edge of the earth! Well, North Carolina, but "edge of the earth" sounds way cooler!

That's my favorite thing about working with the shells and fragments I find. No matter what I make, each piece is one of a kind. I never know what I'll find, or what those things might later become. And, I have a great excuse for many trips out to the beach!

I really like your wire wrapping work. It looks very artistic. I happen to know it's a lot harder than it looks! Also, your use of color is a nice, unexpected change. This looks like a very wearable piece.
