New Bracelet Project is a Success!

OK, here's the new project!  I have always been fascinated by runes, in fact I used to write in elvish script quite often (phonetically).
These 2 bracelets are for friends, the runes spell out their names phonetically.
This one spells out PEACE, and I chose blue because it is such a peaceful color.
This one spells out SERENITY.  The beads on this one are amber.
I chose to use natural material (although the abalone shell is dyed green, but at least its a color in nature) because I thought it fit well with runes.  In case you didn't know, runes were used by ancient peoples around the year 1000, mostly in the Scandinavian area.  Think Vikings.
I have some more ideas involving runes, but as I said in a previous post, I need a different kind of clay so they won't break.  I actually painted these because white clay was what I had to start with.  I though they would look like bone, but they just looked unfinished, so out came the paint.  Then I sealed them with a matte finish.
I am going to offer the peace & serenity bracelets in my Etsy shop and note that special orders are welcome for names or particular words or even particular symbols.

These are lovely, LH, the colours and shapes. And I like the runes. Once did a design research project on historical and world aphabets. The shapes are so interesting. Thank you for commenting on my blog!
