Stormy Day Bracelet


About this design:

I puchased the boro bead at a fresh market, and didn't know what to do with it. This is what I came up with.

Components:

Boro bead, smokey quartz, pyrite, shell pearls, freshwater pearls, brass beads, amazonite rounds, copper toggle.

    Love the blues. Also the contrast in sizes and textures. So many intersting beads to look at… :)

    All my fav colors.You really have a way with bead caps as well. I never have the right sizes.
    The brass looks lovely with the blue shell pearls.

    Thanks, Nancy! I try to buy as many bead caps as possible. If I find that one doesn’t fit, I flatten it with the handle end of my pliers. That’s what I did with the caps around the boro bead!

    Thanks Deb. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!

    Frida, you are a hoot! I guess I could say the “cockier the better!” ;)
