An original bracelet design by Laura McCabe ©2012.
This stunning pendant necklace takes its structural inspiration from the beautiful "Bells of Ireland” flower. It features a cluster of beaded flowers individually constructed using 15ºs and micro bugle beads in a unique form which uses combination right angle weave, herringbone and peyote stitch. The sparkling neck strap contains Swarovski crystal beads and is highlighted with a centre front toggle closure.
