Terracotta Mixed Media Multistrand Bracelet

Orange, orange, orange ... I love it, can't get enough of it. It's bright, it's warm, it exudes HAPPINESS! I was thrilled that several of my favorite fashion designers used some gorgeous shades of the color this spring and summer, and so of course I needed to make a special bracelet to coordinate and celebrate the color. Textural, warm, earthy, this bracelet is perfect to pair with so many different things. There are a few sprinkles of brighter orange, so it even looks great as an earthy option to wear with a brighter shade of the color. I used mixed metals in this piece, Thai silver, copper and gunmetal. I wore mine the other day and paired it with a sterling silver bead bracelet, adding just the right flash of silver for a dressier occasion. It's a joy to wear all the casual, warm goodness of the season around your wrist ... and it will carry that warmth right into Fall, with the earthy hues and mixed metals! I'll likely make another one to offer in the shop at some point and will take special orders for them in the meantime. This one obviously makes me smile ... orange happiness!
