Going Natural, Looking Great in Turquoise, Rose Quartz, and Shells Kumihimo Bracelets

Today I have a few Kumihimo bracelets that I wanted to feature that are all done with help from mother nature, with a hint of glamour added. I love the glitzy sparkly look of the crystals and glass, but I also truly love natural stones and materials - and I figured why not use both but with the spotlight being on the natural stuff. So I decided to dedicate this to the nature lovers and jewelry enthusiasts alike. I love the way mixing natural materials with a hint of glitz looks and feels. It's like taking a small piece of mother nature with you wherever you go, and looking great while you're doing it. Plus, they have been sitting in the $20 and Up Bin, and I felt I needed to tell their stories and get them some blog 'air time'.

First up, Turquoise Lover's Delight. Just as the name says, this bracelet has a generous amount of turquoise pieces braided using the Japanese Kumihimo technique. I wanted to add a little bling, so I added black sparkling crystals which appear to nicely wrap around and in-between the turquoise pieces. Such a lovely look and feel. It has a lobster clasp to make a more flexible fit in size and wear. This fits a 7" - 8 1/2" wrist, but I can custom make you one with a smaller or specific size if desired - just state the size you want in the ordering process. It also has a small dangle for extra cuteness. Turquoise and jewelry lovers both I think will love this bracelet!

Next in the Feeling Natural line, is the Rose Quartz Kumihimo Bracelet. This one was done in lovely light pink Rose Quartz pieces. I added a touch of clear and white beads which allows the prettiness of the rose quartz stones to really stand out. They are followed by large metal beads with crystals, and beautiful clear and pink glass beads that help give it an added glamorous boost. It has the easy-to-use rhinestone magnetic clasp, which makes wearing the bracelet quick, easy, sturdy, and extra sparkly. This one fits 7 1/2" - 8 1/2" wrist comfortably, but you can have one made to a different size by including the size you want in the ordering process below. I think the ladies will just love this one, pink bracelets are always nice as a birthday or Christmas gift!

As I was taking pictures, these two just naturally seemed to gravitate to the shape of a heart, and being a heart-lover, I just had to take a picture. I ♥ them! :)

And finally, here in Florida we have a lot of beaches and shells are everywhere. They also seem to be "in" in the fashion world. People love them and seem to gravitate to them like women near a chocolate store. Well, luckily I love them as well, which is why I picked out these lovely brown multi-colored shells. They have a real smooth pearlescent look that seems to shimmer from all angles, but you can still see that they are definitely shells. Since they are shells, mother nature naturally enhanced them with various shades of brown and various other colors, such as dark cappucino, light mocha, a neat caramel color, goldish-brown, and silverish-white. Shell and brown color lovers I think would adore and appreciate this bracelet. For added sparkle, I added dark brown beads that seem to almost glow they are so shiny, and large rhinestone metal beads, along with a polished looking silver plated toggle clasp. Now due to the different sized shell pieces, this bracelet is about a four out of five on the chunkiness meter, but it still wears easily for people who like or don't mind the chunkier bracelets. It measures 9" in length, but will fit a 7" wrist comfortably. I sure hope you love this Shimmering Shells bracelet too, like I do!
