Ribbon, Chain & Charms.


About this design:

Little bracelet with last piece of copper chain. The copper heart charm is actually half of a toggle that I think is too too small for that. Patina on beads on ribbon.

Components:

Lima Beads: Abalone silk ribbon. Vintaj patina amethyst. Czech firepolished matte amethyst. Stash: Copper chain. Amethyst crystal charms. Copper spacer beads. Copper heart toggle.

    Deb Harding says:

    Thank you. I’m thinking about making more with different ribbon, chain, charms and.seeing if they will sell.
    I’m seriously thinking of ones with aqua ribbon & crystals and seashells since I have a big box of them.

    Awesome. Simple… but with lots of little details to look at. This will be an awesome idea for the Sari Silk! :)

    Julie hit its appeal on the head–it’s all those little details that are such a feast for the eyes! These colors are gorgeous together, too! I think you could sell a lot of these! :)

    Oooops that submitted before I was done. I meant to say thank you eveeyone for your generous compliments.

    Peggy3 says:

    The copper and gold is very pretty.

    Same bracelet with aqua ribbon & crystals and seashells would be a great color combo.
    The link chain you used, is that copper ?

    I just ordered copper chain and its ‘bright’ , too bright I think. I need to find a technique to change the color a bit.

    Laud says:

    LOVE the colors, especially that scrumptious ribbon. I’m intrigued by the toggle “charm”, too. I bought clasps that simply don’t work (bead show–no returns. Sigh.), so now I know what to do with them. Thanks!

    Elis Mom says:

    Very pretty, Deb!

  15. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    Thank you Peggy…everything is copper…the chain, heart, caps on crystal charms. I’m not sure where you are seeing gold. For some reason I don’t like to order chain. I like to touch it, see the size, see the color in person. This chain is more rustic looking…not bright. I’ve had several people tell me here that Gilder’s paste will tone down bright metal.

    Thank yoi Laud. The toggle charm was a last minute thing to fill the area around the clasp. I had tried using it as a toggle before. Its just too tiny.

    Deb, I’m not sure what else is left to say, so I’m going to just agree with all the others! I love everything about this bracelet! So many possibilities, too! Fantastic idea! :D
