March Aquamarine bracelet

A dazzling light effect is reflected off of this bracelet designed with the March birthstone shade!

This swirling design looks infinitely more complicated than it actually is. Pair aqua AB disk crystals with crystals of a complementary color. Then string an alternating color pattern for a bracelet that ripples with liquid light.
