for my lovely sister :)

I made this turquoise bracelet for my sister's birthday earlier this month, and I am so happy that she loves it (phew!).

I used 2mm turquoise beads, clear Swarovski crystals of various sizes and dainty sterling silver beads. I love using two wires for bracelets, either threading them both through the same bead or separating them in places - I think you can create really interesting designs this way :)

I especially chose Turquoise because it is the birthstone for December (and I know my sister likes this stone a lot). Turquoise symbolises purification, serenity and wisdom. It is also a protection stone, and it promotes love and positive thinking :)
