Random Wire Bracelet


About this design:

I had a variety of extra beads and decided to make a wire memory bracelet for a friend. I thought that the colors went together in a surprising way.

Components:

Assorted Czech glass beads (blueberry green tea-LB), grey and purple glass cat eye beads, assorted freshwater (cream and light purple) and glass pearls, assorted gemstones (olive fire agate, obsidian, Labradorite chips,garnet chips, and serpentine, dyed shells), assorted crystal beads, assorted glass beads

    Thanks everyone! Coral, I’ve made some pieces a few months ago that I’ve shared, but I also use any ‘TV time’, i.e. the Oscars to make jewelry. I think it helps to reboot the mind after a long day.

    Random beads have a charm that’s all their own. Love what you have done with them. :)
