I used eight 19mm round acrylic bronze and white beads, and strung them on white leather, knotting the leather in between the beads. I used a bronze TierraCast toggle clasp. I hardly ever name my pieces, but when this bracelet was completed the name came to mind immediately. Length: Approximately 7-1/4″.
All I wanted with these beads was for the shape and color to take front and center. The puffy triangle shape of the onyx made a beautiful statement.
