Sailors Take Warning

My father was in the U.S. Navy during World War II. There is an old saying, "Red sky at morning, sailors take warning. Red sky at night, sailors' delight!" The centerpiece Pietersite stone appears to depict a raging storm, most likely preceded by a red sky! I carried this theme into the bracelet band by allowing the bead hues to meld into one another. It appears that the bracelet band is glass mosaic, with gold as its grout. I hand-stitched beads through 14kt gold-filled chain, which ripple amongst the waves.

This piece is dedicated to my father, who forever may remain the best artist in the family.

The bracelet is part of his daughter's personal collection, and is not for sale.
