Zebra Shell Bracelet


About this design:

Working on asymmetrical designs more and more. Doesn't come naturally to me, I must say. But I do love the look when it comes together right. Here's a bracelet I recently finished.
Do you have any tips on asymmetrical designing?

    Oh, Lynda! I just received your blog e-mail with this pictured, so I came here to see if you’d posted it yet! 8)

    I love this combo — you’ve done a fab job of pulling the various colors out of your beautiful focal bead! :D I also have a tough time creating asymmetrical designs, yet love the ones I see other beaders create. Sigh. Perhaps I just need to learn to “wing it” and not be so anal. LOL ;) 8O

    Oh, you definitely nailed it with this one!
    Love the shells, the focal, everything…. And that shade of green in your seed beads is awesome!

    Question; How do you think the shells will hold up in a bracelet?

    @Chicky LE, JUST DO IT!!!! ;-)
    You’ll do great!

    Thanks, everyone!
    Good question, Mary. I honestly don’t know, as I’ve never used these shells before. However, they seem to have thick shell walls, so fingers crossed.

    This is nice, it looks like a fish blowing a big bubble !! Tips? – Just keep the balance really, on both sides, maybe slightly larger (Toho) beads could have been used ~ but really, this is lovely !
