Is it a bangle? Is it a bracelet? No, it's a brangle,! This unique type of wrist adornment combines the smooth look of a bangle and the fluidity of a bracelet.
In this particular piece I used lampwork beads that remind me of the bright blue skies and golden sun-kissed lands of the Mediterranean (well, the photos I've seen of the bright blue skies and golden sun-kissed lands of the Mediterranean). I've combined the lampwork with silver beads, colorful ceramic spacers and hand-coiled sterling silver.
I can see this brangle being a playful addition to the workday wardrobe. I'll be adding it soon to my etsy shop.
