I still have some of the Czech Mates two hole tile beads left from other bead projects. I decided to utilize these into stringing myself another...
Components: A combination of the Czech Mates two hole tile beads contrasting each other; yet, also complementing one another. The Czech Mate Quadra four hole tile in the color of Gold Flax is used. I love the earth tones.
WildFire bead thread was used in white. A shiny gold two hole tube clasp to finish this bracelet. Gold findings also used:
gold crimp tubes, crimp covers and gold wire guardians.
I had these really nice blue dyed quartz nuggets / chips in the denim color. Oh, do I love my denim !!! I thought that I would make myself a...
Components: One 20 mm ornate Zola metal bead in silver as my focal. Blue denim colored dyed quartz nuggets / chips. I stung this bracelet using my beading wire and I doubled it for security of both the gemstone chips and the Zola coin bead. I was a bit surprised as the Zola does have a
touch of weight to it. given that it's all metal. I finished my ends by using 5 mm
round silver plated metal beads connected with my two hole toggle and clasp. Silver
components used such as wire, wire guardians, crimp covers. The toggle and clasp is a basic rope design.
I'm still working with leather cords and their components. I asked to copy this particular design from a vendor which I purchase my leather cords...
Components: The main leather strap is 10mm with a soft floral pattern with blues evident in the flowers. The silver slider findings hold 2mm round leather cord which is weaved or twisted on both sides of the leather strap. The clasp is a 15mm magnetic one to hold everything together along with super glue for leather. I have another piece of this floral leather strap in the colors of olive, teal and purple.
I will be making the same bracelet with a berry color that matches the purple with the same silver sliders and a different 15mm magnetic clasp.
I see that Lima has the cork cords. Fantastic !!! This is the new leather sensation right now. Great colors and designs !!!!
