My Country, of thee I Bead Hop

I grew up in Brazil, so I decided to do this hop about Brazil.
Nan Smith, from ,  is the host for this wonderful hop.
You have to make a piece of jewelry and write about it.
The colors for the Brazilian flag are yellow, green blue and white, and since tomorrow is the finals for the Confederation's Cup and Brazil is one of the finalists, I thought why not?
I have so many good memories about my childhood and I will treasure them forever.
In Brazil there are so many butterflies, so I also made two butterflies bracelet :

And here is where I found the butterfly inspiration, when I first moved here to the USA,  I was given those frames as gifts:

Thank you so much to Nan Smith for hosting this very nice hop and for allowing us beader's to have fun.
Please make sure you visit all the other blogs on this hop and here is link again:

History Hop

I am doing the History Hop hosted by Leah Curtis and here is the link to her blog:
 Please make sure you visit her blog and check out what the other participants created.

You choose a specific region and civilization and then you create your pieces.
I choose the Indus Valley Civilization, partly because is my heritage, my grandparents were all born in India.
For this era the jewelry was made of gold, semi precious stones, pearls,copper, pearls, corals, shells, etc..
So for my first piece I had a pendant made of pearls, coral and green stones(emerald imitation), so I decided to make a necklace using the some colors as the pendant.
Then I had components and I had no idea what I was going to make with it.
Voila! I made a necklace and a bracelet to match.
Thank you so much Leah for giving us a chance to show-off our creativity, and all the work you have put into this challenge
