Toni Brundage, a long-time Happy Mango Beads customer, purchased our African Dreams Bead Collection and she created this wonderful bracelet!

"I am inspired by nature, especially sunsets – it is a constant source of inspiration. I love photography so I spend a lot of time photographing birds, flowers, etc. I like how everything in nature has its own unique identity. There is always going to be that one thing that is different, making no two trees the same, no two birds the same. I enjoy designing jewelry that is different. I would give most of my inspiration credit to my dad. He was always taking pieces of nature like wisteria vines, rocks, etc and turning them into a beautiful piece of art." -Toni Brundage
