Creamy cultured pearls, pastel swarovski crystal pearls, & opalescent crystal beads.  Hand crochet in 14 kt gold wire with slide magnetic gold clasp.

This bracelet’s style comes from the design series Now & Forever, the first of my handmade bracelets. It is named Butterfly Garden in honor of my RPO Cottage Gardens bracelets grouping for the upcoming RPO Symphony Showhouse 2010, Noteworthy’s Boutique.  Located at The Cottages at Malvern Hill (between Thornell Road & Rt. 64) in Pittsford, New York.  May 22 to June 13, 2010  www.rposhowhouse.org

I am forever amazed at the butterfly’s fragile beauty & resiliant strength.  Butterflies fly thousands of miles to winter-over in warm climates.  In their seemingly wandering fluttering, they are able to make their way year after year & generation after generation.  Floating on lilting breezes: meandering up & down, this side & that, the butterfly accomplishes a most astounding  journey.  Have you ever tried to catch a butterfly in your hands?  It is not as simple as it would appear.  Much like some of us.  

Colorful, silken, delightful flutter-by’s!

Designed as a piece in my RPO Symphony: “Cottage Gardens” bracelet series for the upcoming Noteworthy’s Boutique at the Symphony Showcase 2010www.rposhowhouse.org

This bracelet features aquamarine stones on silver wire, knit as fine & elegant as lace, with Swarovski sparkling crystals in matching hue, & sterling silver clasp.

The aquamarine stones are spaced across the bracelet like notes on a music staff.

Its delicate color & texture remind me of the beautiful Luna Moth.
