Vintage - Sparkle

Hot of the press - made this bracelet this afternoon. Had a lot of vintage beads arrive today and couldn't resist to make something lovely and special with them.

I've used modern silverplated findings: the plain toggle clasp and beautiful diamonte spacers, a few silverplated beads and crimps and the clamps at the ends. All is held together by silver tigertail. The vintage beads are faceted AB coated crystal ovals and AB coated smooth round crystal beads in an alternating pattern. I love the way they reflect the light differently and give the bracelet a lovely depth and sparkle.
