Buddha Jungle Cruise Inspired Wrist Cuff

I found a few silver face charms that immediately brought images of giant Buddha statue heads found in the deep jungles of Thailand. Of course the closest i have come to being in a Thai jungle was riding the Jungle Cruise ride in Disneyland.... or was it the Indiana Jones ride? Well whichever it was, those Buddha heads left an impression on me. One day i hope to see the real ones.

This one of a kind bracelet was created by hand stringing onto wire glass beads in hues of pale pink, turquoise, teal green, aurora borealis clear and purple blacks. Then i crocheted sea green non-tarnish copper wire and silver into strands. After the which were plaited and sewn together with more wire to make it stable and to add a more sculptured effect. Three silver ancient face charms are intertwined onto the cuff. Close your eyes. You can almost smell the orchids of the jungle.
