White and Red is one of my favorite color combination and this bracelet even though simple embraces all that I like, it looks elegant and almost regal. The red glass beads gives it a rubied flare, like expensive jewelry. It is knotted with nylon macrame cords, and embellished with Czech and Japanese beads.

Vicky, I like it a lot!!! It reminds me of either fine jewelry like you said with rubies, or to me it reminds me also of vintage costume jewelry which I used to sell. The c.j. companies mimicked the fine jewels of Cartier, etc. and made them affordable to the mass market. Your bracelet has that "look" of metal surrounding a number of precious (in the case of c.j. rhinestones) gems. Very very nice. Donna

Thank you Donna!!! That was the thought, I liked the idea of fine jewelry in macrame form. I like the sparkles that the beads give off, just like real gems, without the price tag.

I never heard of the c.j. companies but I will google it, I'm curious.

I also made a necklace with that idea in mind but forgot to post it, still working on the earrings. But I just feel so humbled when I see the beautiful pieces other readers post. What an amazing community.

thanks again

Vicky, did not mean to use abbreviations and confuse. c.j. is Costume Jewelry and our states of Rhode Island and New York led the way for a LOT of the big companies. c.j. was made by companies like Eisenberg, Napier, Coro, Trifari and many many others. A bit later on a lot of companies were in other states notably California too. Donna

Tried to post this before. Guess it went off into the Land of Lost Pixels.

Vicky : What a sweet bracelet. It looks so delicate. With Valentines approaching, my head is stuck in 'red' and this is just perfect.

It's yummilicious!  It reminds me of cherries jubilee.  I love how airy and light your bracelet looks.
