Orange Burst

Wow...what a great colorful bracelet! I am loving the color combination if I do say so myself! I found these cool orange fiber beads at a bead show and just had to have them.

The orange beads are Tinalak fabric covered wood beads.
Tinalak is a colorfully designed cloth. It is handwoven and made from the bark of trees including banana fibers.Handcrafted by t'boli people (natives of the Philippines) in the Philippines.

I paired them with multi colored polymer beads hand crafted by fellow Etsian Hande Burge at Aslan Crafts. I hand forged a hook and eye clasp from brass. The bracelet is a generous 8 1/2" and is very lightweight. You can find this in my "Flap Your Wings" Etsy store.

  2. Beautiful combo! I love orange lately.
