A beadwoven coral reef with a ruffle of frosted white, silver and ivory seed beads edges this bracelet. A woven ocean of aquamarine and sea green seed beads forms the base. A sterling silver starfish, freshwater pearls and a shell add some interest along the ocean "bottom". Beadwoven coral and a sea urchin hang out on both ends of the bracelet. I wove gaps into the bracelet to add more interest and a bit of randomness. I purposefully used irregular seed beads for a bit more randomness - the ocean is not an even or symmetrical place.

The woven ruffle was the start for this bracelet. I saw it in the August 2009 copy of Beadwork. I really wanted to use those green/blue seed beads so I started weaving, leaving openings in the weave here and there. When I got to the ruffle I had to change it up a bit. The ruffle in the magazine didn't really look like coral so I modified the weave to get the look I wanted. It turned out great! There are definitely more woven ruffles in my design future.

The bracelet closes with a sterling toggle clasp with two loops. The bracelet size is 7-7 1/4" (17.8-18.4 cm) or 7 3/4" (19..7 cm) depending on which loop you use. It can fit a 6 1/2-6 3/4" (16.5- 17.1cm) or 7 1/4" (18.4 cm) size wrist. All the silver you see is sterling. Due to the nature of this woven bracelet the size cannot be changed too much. If the size isn't right let me know what size you need and I'll see if this can be modified. If not I can always make you a custom order.

Now some of the little reminders ... This design uses glass seed beads, pearl and shell beads so they can break if dropped onto a hard surface. There is no charge for shipping for this bracelet and any other design you buy at the same time.. I accept paypal, money orders and cashiers checks. Your bracelet will arrive gift wrapped for you to open yourself or give to someone else. I include insurance and delivery confirmation (except for international since those services aren't available).
