|NEW BRACELETS - The first two shown below are the same pattern using the new double hole bricks, but wow, what a difference in appearance just by substituting ...|
|Here's the first one I made - a totally new design by Eileen Barker at Bead Street using two hole bricks, just in. (Thanks, Eileen!) BEAD STREET. These beads certainly open up a whole new dimension of possibilities. My bracelet looks like cotton candy to me... it's totally Spring.|
|I used a Czech glass button, which reflects all the colors of the beads.|
A freeform wire flower bracelet using 26 gauge wire to wrap the beads and leaves - added to chainmaille - using two colors of jump rings. The wire wrapping was a challenge, but the wire gave me a little more flexibility in readjusting locale of each bead/leaf.
