I can't seem to be able to snap out of this bracelet phase, where no other kind of jewelry seems even remotely as seductive as wrist adornments.
Perhaps the reason is that bracelets are more introverted then necklaces.
When we wear necklaces, we know they are beautiful, they might even feel good, but we are ultimately denied the pleasure of looking at them all day.
So necklaces, and following the same logic, earrings are for others, to be exhibited and flaunted, but ultimately for the pleasure of the viewer rather then the wearer.

This piece is called Bioluminescent Spring.
The Czech glass button has this truly luminescent quality, where it's color hovers between pearly purple and milky aqua, and I wanted to build a spring like world around it, light and fresh, and totally out of the box.
I found this wonderful button at Blue Marble Beads on Etsy, a wonderful treasury of vintage beading supplies, really hard to find stuff.
Here is a link to her store:

The button has a life of it's own with it's luminous presence, as if it was alive, and that's why it's bioluminescent.

I feel like whenever I plan something as asymmetrical as this piece, the elements of it and the "weight of the pattern" has to be well balanced.I imagine colors have weight, and depending on their weight, the two sides have to be balanced without even remotely resembling one another.

There needs to be negative space too, because with such a big bracelet it does not hurt if it has an airy quality to it, so it doesn't feel like it's taking over your personal space.
I wanted to have circles, kind of like how the early light breaks on a pool of spring water, and I wanted texture. These big chunky pearls really added to the feeling of some sort of buds on the surface of that water. Or just budding flowers anyways.
The lining is embossed metallic light blue sheepskin. I like using metallic leathers, they add a unique touch. The claps is just a simple copper tube clasp, super durable, nothing fancy but all the more functional.
Thanks for looking. Happy Spring!
