Coral Bracelets, Necklaces, Earrings: Gifts from the Sea

coral bracelet with pearls and sterling silver
 I adore coral; it's an organic material straight from the sea with all the magic of the sea. Coral combines well with pearls and other gemstones, and of course, it looks wonderful with artist's lampwork beads. I'm especially fond of peachy-pink colored coral of any kind, and I am bewitched by  branch coral with long twiggy-looking sprigs.

 Above and below, coral bracelets with slices of red coral.  The bracelet above has deep red coral mixed with brightly colored artist's lampwork beads; a second strand features a super-heavy length of sterling chain and tiny Thai Karen Hill Tribe beads and dangles sea-themed sterling charms. The coral bracelet below has brighter red slices of coral with special artist's lampwork beads and vermeil accents.

Those coral nuggets are gorgeous they're so elegant & rustic at the same time. Are all of the corals fixed on silver bracelets? I'm having a hard time deciding between the red coral & the peach coloured coral. Though, I'll wear that great big red coral & vermeil necklace any time of day!
