This set was made for the Suddenly Spring Challenge sponsored by Michelle Mach.  Each participant in the challenge received a bracelet with aquamarine rondelles as well as rhinestone rondelles (see my Jan 24 post). When I think of spring, I think green.  However, I didn't have anything in my stash that complimented the aquamarine except for the orange ceramic beads and some orange cane glass beads.  I also used brass findings.  So this spring piece is titled Sun and Sky. The focal beads were from one of the Jesse James Design Elements or Inspirations bead sets.  Thank you Michelle for providing the inspiration for the challenge!
