Japanese Crystal + Cameo Charm Bracelet

I just bought this sparkling crystal cuff bracelet from my officemate who's so good with beads:

She has no plans of selling this and just brought it to show to us.  But I liked it so much I prodded her to sell it to me.

She used japanese crystals beads in clear white and baby pink colors.  Japanese beads, she said, are less expensive than real swarovski crystals.  But the brilliance, as you will notice in the picture, is outstanding everybody was looking at my wrist when I wear this. 

As a vintage twist to this sparkling bracelet, she added a cameo pendant as a charm.  I love it!   It reminds me of some of the bracelets I like at Etsy:

Blue Cameo connected to a vintage white bead chain by Tamar

Amethyst cameo charm bracelet by Molliecarey

Glass beaded bracelet with a cameo in the form of a Victorian woman.  By Silver Trumpet.

Lovely aren't they?
