The Winter Cherry Blossom Bracelet
This cosy bracelet features rich cranberry tones, warm grays and soft browns. It’s just the sort of bracelet I love: very wearable, with a solid, neutral palette that can easily be updated and adjusted with fresh accent colours according to the wearer’s mood.
In this case the two red beads make a beautifully vibrant, seasonal statement… but imagine this bracelet with purple, teal, cerise, gold or practically any other jewel tone substituted for the red. By exchanging only a couple of beads an entirely different bracelet may be created. I selected the “Silver Bead with Garnets” and “Golden Thread” for their chameleon like quality of being able to blend well with the full range of reds, purples and browns. “Deep Bubbles” is at first glance a perfectly neutral olive, but deep in it’s heart it contains traces of indigo and purple that come to life when the bead is placed near those colours. “Labradorite” is similarly neutral, but again, contains a shimmer of brilliant indigo and teal. This subtle tapestry of tones gives life and interest to what otherwise might be a muddy palette, and allows a wide range of complementary colours to be easily introduced.
Clockwise from lock: “Freja Lock”, “Black Silk”, “Art Nouveau”, “Smoky Topaz”, “Brown Dot”, “Zanzibar”, “Red Berry”, “Labradorite”, “Snowball”, “Cherry Blossom”, “Porcupine”, “Deep Bubbles”, “Silver Bead with Garnets”, “Golden Thread”, “Sandi”, “Limited Edition Christmas in Hawaii Bead”.
