I bought these lamp work beads at the 2011 Bead & Button show because they are purple, and fun, and weren't very expensive (as lamp work beads go). Needless to say, they were an impulse buy. The blue and white beads came with. The lavender gemstones I had in my stash, and the clasp...well, the clasp is a scarab clasp that I bought from A Grain of Sand. So what does a scarab have to do with sea shells? Nothing, absolutely nothing, but the blue perfectly matched the blue of the beads. Once again, the bracelet is strung on Sterling Silver Soft Flex Metallic Flex Wire, Medium Weight (.019 in diameter).
