EBW Challenge - Midsummer Night's Dream

Got all inspired last night and made a freeform peyote bracelet with the focal bead which I bought at Bead and Gem Show. The theme Midsummer Night's Dream made me think of moonlight on water, and I feel the bracelet depicts this quite well.

The focal bead is the moon's reflection, with the dark blue rippling sea coated with moonbeams.

Posted the bracelet on Etsy today. http://www.etsy.com/create_listing5.php?listing_id=13007694

You can vote for your favourite EBW Challenge piece from 9 July 2008 on the Etsy Beadweavers Blog site (see link).

If you are interested in lampwork beads, the focal bead featured here was made by Tom of Vitrospective and more of his work can be seen at www.Vitrospective.com. He and Jessica have been kind enough to admire my bracelet and asked whether they can include it on their blog.
