New Bracelet: Warm Desert Colors!

I absolutely love the warm hues of terra cotta and tans, mixed with gunmetal in the latest bracelet in my shop (www.MyHappyThings.etsy.com)! These are such great colors for summer and even into Fall ... okay, so I wear these colors all year round, but you get the idea! I've had the tan desert jasper beads for some time and have been waiting to find just the right terra cotta-colored items to mix with them. These fossil and jasper rondelles are perfect, just enough of a splash of dark orange-brown to create the effect of the warmth of the Arizona desert. I've really enjoyed working with gunmetal lately, it adds a touch of "steampunk" style to pieces. I love the way it all came together in this bracelet and only wish the true warmth and richness of the hues were represented better in the photo!
