Queen Protea Bracelet
South Africa has plant life that is unlike anything that is commonly seen in the United States. One flower in particular that intrigued us recently is the King Protea, the national flower of South Africa that is often considered the most spectacular flower in the world (see pictures below).
When Betty designed this beautiful bracelet we knew it was destined for royalty. Five strands of karakatana beads are strung together and attached to a woven panel of turquoise, orange and sparkling purple seed beads, nothing short of royal. And since the “queen” of beadwork created this masterpiece the name Queen Protea Bracelet came quite naturally.
Size: approximately 7.25" long

Note: Due to the artistic nature of beadwork, no two items are the same.
