Shanghai Nights - Kumihimo Bracelet
Due to the popularity of Santorini Dreams, my first Kumihimo bracelet featuring howlite chips, I decided to create another, more classic colour combination. Shanghai Nights uses those same natural Howlite chips this time with lustrous black glass beads. The button clasp is actually a bright red carved cinnabar bead, with a little cascade of beads and chips.
The classic black/white/red colour combo pairs with virtually any look; from flirty summer maxi dresses to jeans and a tee to elegant evening wear. This bracelet can take you from day to night without a second thought.
Howlite - This is one of our favourite gemstones to work with and was originally discovered in Nova Scotia, Canada (one of several of our 'homes'). Howlite is a powerful calming stone and promotes wisdom and enlightenment and couldn't we all use more of that in our lives!
