Piazza Bella in Italian means “Beautiful Square”.That is exactly what this bracelet consists of; beautiful squares that connect together to make a bracelet.Each square consists of three layers which forms the overall dimensional shape of a square.The first layer is the foundation for the square and is made using a peyote stitch.The second layer is a raised center which is made up of an embellished pearl.
The beads surrounding the top of the pearl are shaped to follow the existing square shape from the foundation row below.The third layer surrounds the raised center piece and is made up of crystals.This third layer of crystals forms a square following the lines of the foundation row.Each square is connected together with a double link.The closure for the bracelet is a slide tube.
