Silk Flower


About this design:

Playing with the sari silk again. This time I used 1 of those bracelet links from Michael's like a bracelet bar (can't afford those). I braided the silk on 1 side and used that teal coated wire to wrap the end. Added some crystal dangles. The other side is just plain chain.

Components:

Aqua floral bracelet link. Aqua crystals. Brass beads. Teal coated wire. Brass chain & findings. Sari Silk.

    Love this, Deb. The bracelet bar is really pretty. I like how you braided the silk; nice, unique touch. Did you wrap the teal wire through the braid somehow? Just wondering how it is secured. Can’t say enough good about this one. It’s a favorite!

    Thanks Lois, Asia, & N Taylor.
    Lois, I just squeezed the crap out of that wire with my pliers. It does not appear to be going anywhere.

    Actually I have 6 left. I bought 2 strands last summer I think. That color was clearanced. My store doesn’t have hardly any of these left. There was a really pretty purple one…no more.

    Here’s another picture of BB’s twin w/some of her friends. She was stretching w/her white belly showing, but was faster than the camera.
    I agree w/Crazy Beader: this bracelet is fairy princess material.

    Actually, fairy mermaid princess. The braided section makes me think of mermaid tails…

    Thank you everyone for the compliments. I really appreciate it. I’m going to make 6 more like this, maybe a little tweak of difference. Giving one to my sister-in-law & maybe selling the rest. We will see how that goes.
    Eeka that kitten is adorable. All kitties are so cute though. With the exception of Mousey, who is still a sweetie and my big baby, most of my grown cats are knotheads. Anybody want handsome Muffin?? Personality conflict with him apparently.
