I began my design with this lovely handmade pottery cuff bead by Cindy Kovar that I've saved for the longest time. The teal color and design on the cuff reminded me of the peacock tails in the Borke painting, so it seemed the time was right to finally use the cuff.

I added beads on each side. Teal-colored Czech glass crystals, brass beads, and persimmon-colored freshwater pearls are all wrapped up in copper wire with a handmade copper clasp to fasten the bracelet. These represent not only the Japanese persimmons hanging from the tree in the painting, but also the colors found in the peacock feathers.
