This bracelet has an antique look about it - like jewelry that Jane Austen might have worn!

Susan designed this purple bracelet using irregular and diagonally drilled mottled purple glass beads as well as lamp work beads of two different sizes.

I especially like the combination of purple, a cool colour with burnished copper beads and gold tone findings, both warm colours. Tiny little topaz coloured seed beads helped group her main bead sets. It is the warmer elements of her design that gives it the antique appearance.
