Fragments of summer
Summer is leaving us a little more every day. I can feel it in the crisp night air. I have dishes of mismatched summer beads on my desk. I had a handful of pastel briolettes lingering around like the last days of summer. They remind me of the Fragments of Summer. I had just enough to make a scrumptious bracelet. There are turquoise, apple dyed jade, hot pink and light pink chalcedony, green chalcedony, butterscotch chalcedony, Aqua blue chalcedony, rose quartz, green adventurine, howlite, and swarovski crystals. The clasp is a 14kt gold filled heart toggle. What I really love is how it feels on my wrist. Very comfortable and rich.
