Honey Bee Bracelet

About this design:

This Honey Bee bracelet came about because of another (ugly) bead (that I could not seem to through away) and another bracelet I made using the same color scheme. But no bees in that one. After doing that bracelet...which reminded me of the coloring of bees. I thought why not do an actual bee themed bracelet. So this is what I created. I also made a handmade box to go with it. A great way to recycle cereal boxes.


Various Lamp work beads, Black Czech crystal, seed beads, golden yellow Czech leaves and crystal bicones, antique silver plated twisted jumprings, beads, bee charms, and toggle.
