Customization: Joan




A bracelet for Joan's daily work wear, since her wardrobe consists mainly of white beige shades, we settled on this palette with a creamy peach flower in the center :)
Bracelet concept gleaned from Velvet, with travel themed charms added.
A sparrow in the midst of the beads, signifying a breaking free from the difficult times she had in 2011. 
(note: this bracelet was made in Feb this year)

Next up is this pretty cool concept Joan had, here's what she said
" i'm thinking of something like this: treasure huntunsolved mysteries & bygone era ...  
Which also makes me think of Sherlock Holmes Agatha Christie :) "


Olden day symbols like the carriage, oil lamp & scroll breathe an air of antiquity to this piece,
with dark purple & maroon beads giving it a sense of mystery.
Joan's a big fan of classic Cloisonne beads as well so we used 3 here along with a red cherry blossom ceramic bead!
