    Mary, I used around 200 beads, with many wires having 2-3 beads. The bracelet is almost 8 inches (I have big wrists). I wanted to practice my wire wrapping, and what better way? It actually went pretty fast, but I had sore fingers after!

    What a great way to use leftovers – and I’m cooing over all the green! You had a lot of patience to add that many beads to the chain, but it sure paid off! Love it!

    Thank you, everyone. Seeing all the beautiful pieces, I was a little shy about submitting anything, but your wonderful positive comments make me feel much better.

    Love it!!! I made a cha-cha bracelet several years ago when I was first learning to make wrapped loops. It’s always been a fun one to wear! :)

    Orphan beads are a great to work with and you have made an excellent design with them. Do you have any finger prints left? :D
