Something that is eclectic means it is a mixture of different item or concepts in whatever form they may take.The Eclectic bracelet is just that.A mixture of different techniques and materials that come together to form a unique and beautiful three dimensional object.
The center piece of the bracelet is a hexagonal self supporting beaded bead.The top of the beaded bead has a large pearl sitting in its middle and is embellished with seedbeads and crystals and follows the hexagonal outline of the beaded bead.The straps of the bracelet are a two sided flat herringbone rope.The ends of the rope are capped off with clever bead caps that attach to the center piece by a series of loops embellished with seedbeads and pearls.The closure is a handmade button with a loop.
