Red Memories


About this design:

I've made quite a few memory wire bracelets. I have a ton of red beads to use up so I made this way before Christmas last year. The picture is not too bright leaving it difficult to see detail. But its very sparkley. Lots of gold.

Components:

Swarovski, czech, glass beads with antique gold spacers and bead caps.

    I know that a lot of sparkley beaded stuff is not exactly “in” right now but I have so much of it to use up. Of course, various trends go away and come back. I’ll save some to mix with other types of beads.

    Very pretty and lots of sparkle. I like the way you used a bit or purple/pink,and a little reddish orange,if I’m not mistaken. It makes me think of fruit punch,during the holidays. :)

    I’ve seen more sparkle than years ago–women wearing sequined t-shirts and sweaters with jeans, for example. Sparkle is cool (and I LOVE red).

    Nancy, this color combo of reds & gold looks very rich & elegant! Love the “sparkliness” — it never goes out of style with me!!! :D

    Beautiful! I am always drawn to red. Also, wanted to tell you that in or not sparkly is all many of my friends will wear.
