About this design:

Granny Chick AKA Nancy and I have built a lovely relationship here at Lima. She liked the RAK bracelet I did with the link that another Lima Bead-er had sent me. Nancy wondered if she sent me the supplies would I put it together for her. Now, I would not do this for just anyone. But I agreed and She has paid me handsomely with some of her de-stashing beads. Thank You so much Nancy! So this is how it turned out. Matching earrings will be made. Enjoy Sweetie!

Components:

Lima- Blue line agate, Fresh pearls, rolo chain, butterfly toggle, daisy spacers. And S.S. and pewter Charms, Swarovski crystal. Along with the RAK Link. RAK - Random Act of Kindness.

    I have a ton of the RAK bird connectors. They have been sitting in a organizer box for a few months as no ideas have popped into my designer mind. Love this will steal it but, if anyone need one of these I could RAK ten folks. Just let me know.
    Great design, tons of work…love it, love!

    Lovely work BI, I’m sure that Nancy will love it :D

    I do love it and I am amazed at how quickly Teri put that together in her “spare” time. My fingers no longer work well due to age and neuropathy so I don’t even try to do anything that complex any more. But I still get ideas and thankfully there are people as generous as Teri who like to collaborate.

    But this bracelet is a work of art and will go to my granddaughter one day. She’ll be sure to know who the kind person was who helped her idea come to fruition.

    Very pretty. And I like the paw print near the clasp. :)

    Deb – I have an extra link if you’d like it. When I finally found them online I had to pick up a couple and yes…. they are sitting.
    I’d be happy to send it to you

    Oh my gosh.how gorgeous!! There’s so many interesting things to look at,but it’s not overdone at all. The blue stones with the pearls are lovely!!

  22. Granny Nancy
    Granny Nancy says:

    Terri, you have a winner here. If you consider another open house some day – like for Christmas shopping – this type would be very desirable. You could offer special orders for specific themes of charms in addition to the beads.

    Pet and ocean themes seem to be very popular. I look thru my stash for more of the same. I HAVE to get my stash reduced. Even if I get moved to a smaller house, I’ll still keep making small, easy pieces. But right now, I just have too much stuff.

    Lois D says:

    Absolutely gorgeous; another stunning design from Terri :) I’ll always be in awe of your work and generosity.
    You know, to me, this type of collaboration is what makes this such a special place to ‘belong’.
    I was thinking about the focal/link and it dawned on me that it could be a sort of ‘signature’ link for the “Chickies” here at LB! Just as Nancy mentioned, this type of design “would be very desirable”!!!

    Beautiful! Looks complicated. Great design!

    That’s a great idea Lois D…you know, (letting the cat out of the bag here :) )…you are part of this collaboration! Since this is one of the links you sent me…your random act of kindness is still spreading. :-D

    Thank you all so much! I hope some of the Ladies take N Taylor up on her RAK offer. That is so sweet of you! :)

    N Taylor says:

    All I need is a mailing address and I will slip them in the mail. They are super lightweight and could come in normal mail protected in a card. Just friend me at LB and once I run out I will post for all to know. We could have fun showing each other how we used them! You know a little how I spent my summer vacation thing going on.
