Year of Jewelry 2004 Week 1

For the first week, I decided to not go with the proposed theme, which was "music". I've been working like crazy making these coiled bangles for a few months now. One of the first ones I made had carnelians and dyed chalcedony like this one, but I sold it before I could take a good picture of it. So I decided to re-created it this week, and needless to say, it didn't turn out exactly like the other one. I also added light orange "angel skin" coral. Originally I thought coral was in extinction, but now I found out that the coral used for jewelry design is not in fact endangered.
