Another marine-theme bracelet... This one is derived from the Underwater relic pendant created a couple of weeks ago (see below). I like the way it looks very organic -- the various tiny beads almost look like barnacles (small crustaceans which attach to submerged surfaces) -- and not symmetrical as most of my pieces are. Little critters continue to crawl all over my bracelets... a dolphin, a shark, a lobster, a sea -horse and the tiniest sea turtle.

Marine Relic Bangle

The bangle was constructed with sterling silver, organic-looking aquamarine nuggets and green garnets.
