Pearl Floral Goddess


About this design:

Another take on the Goddess Bracelet. Tutorial available at The Gossiping Goddess Blogspot. Added a larger tumbled opal nugget in 2 spots and then the Czech 2-hole pink flowers at the end. I think I'm satisfied...will have to wear it awhile. (made a bracelet Sunday and took it apart Monday lol).

Look how big ButterBall is getting! He is a funny baby.

Components:

Pink and White Freshwater Pearls. Pink Tumbled Opal Nuggets. Pink Czech 2-Hole Flowers. Pink Seed Beads. Carved Wood Button. S-lon cord.

    Deb Harding says:

    Thank you. Look for the tutorial at http://www.gossipinggoddess.blogspot.com. Its one of the easiest bracelets ever. But can be made with so many different beads and altered easily.

    Crazy Beader says:

    The bracelet is wonderful, Deb, but BB is even cuter ! Don’t think he’ll ever “grow into” those big eyes – - – thanks for sharing the photos.

    Website for tutorial is http://www.thegossipinggoddess.blogspot.com
    If you don’t put “the” in the address it goes nowhere.

    Oh Deb, ButterBall is SO cute!!! Is Mousey still your true-baby or has BB taken over? You are one lucky Mama!!! :)

    In the last picture, BB says,”see these cute toes? I’m sure they are what inspired this bracelet.”

    Deb Harding says:

    Julie…no one can ever muscle in on Mousey’s spot in my heart. I adore BB but Mousey *IS* my baby. I love that cat more than any of my other pets. And Mousey loves ButterBall!
    Julia and Becky thank you and you still can’t hace him Becky!

    Deb Harding says:

    Eeka that’s cute! As I type that little stinker is trying to get in trouble.

    Laud says:

    I’m intrigued by how you did the button loop. I’ve never made much of the loops–just hid them behind the button–but the extra dangles add panache.

    P.S. Your kitty is unbelievably cute. Those eyes!

    Lovely bracelet! Butterball is so cute. He’s getting so big. :)

    Medieval Momma says:

    Oh Butterball is so cute! And I love the bracelet to!

  15. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    Thanks Jolene & Medieval Momma.
    Laud the button loop is different. Most button bracelets you make the loop first, string the bracelet and then add the button. This bracelet is opposite. Its what made me look at these bracelets in the first place. Then that easy jump ring stringing technique. The woman who male.a lot.of them to sell has a website http://www.beadmeupbuttercup.com I think. I’m adding a photo of.ome.of hers. She also makes the polymer clay buttons.

    Love, love, love the delicate color of the bracelet. :)

    Butterball is a cutie! Bet if you read his job description #1 on the list will be: Must be a stinker and #2 Must hide it behind an extremely cute facade! :D

    Deb Harding says:

    Thanks Nancy. LOL you have BB pegged.

    Love the design and the soft colors, BB is so cute and growing fast too :D

    franny says:

    awww…BB just wants to wear the bracelet, Deb!…& i look at Design Gallery to see the kitty pictures!…you are inspiring me but but i have so many UFO’s already!

  20. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    UFOs okay I’m unfamiliar but it must mean unwanted feline something I guess. And I know how that is. BB did wear the bracelet as a necklace and decided since he is a boy he didn’t want to look sissified.

    Absolutely darling! The bracelet and BB!!

  22. Peggy3
    Peggy3 says:

    Pretty! BB is getting so big and so adorable with those big saucer eyes. I think he can be a stinker if he’s that cute! :)

  23. Peggy3
    Peggy3 says:

    looks like a perfect window to sun himself. Ahh the life of a kitty baby- eat, sleep, gets pets, run around like crazy.. only to start again.

    LOL…BB does have the life.
