Chunky Summer Blue Turquoise Bracelet

 I have had these chunky summer blue turquoise nugget beads for a while. I made a bracelet out of them with copper, which I really like. I wanted to make one more. As I was rummaging through my beads, I found some smooth carnelian chip beads. The colors complimented each other so well,

I sat down to put them together. That was a few weeks ago. I was not able to finish it, because I had trouble finding the right base metal beads I wanted to use. I did not have any that I was happy with no matter what combination I tried. They were all too small and delicate and dwarfed by the large chunky turquoise.
 Finally, after a random trip to Hobby Lobby, I noticed  different large metal rings and beads. I grabbed a few bags and knew they would work just right. I was right! The balance between the different sizes is perfect.
At least, in my opinion.

I love how the colors work together.
