Raucous Wrist Party


About this design:

The colors in the bead mix and the many different Vintaj shapes available at Lima Beads seemed to want to jingle-jangle together, like a sunny autumn day in New Orleans. So, I made a "wrist party" to celebrate these beautiful colors and shapes. :-)

Components:

Stained Glass bead mix, 7 Vintaj shapes (used as charms), Vintaj filigree tube beads, Vintaj filigree bead caps, Vintaj brass headpins, Unicorne Beads Doc Spike, Vintaj brass oval chain.

    Wow..This is Fabulous! I love the bright colors against the Brass.The charms are so very creative. I especially like the one with the clear crystals,that look like a little hand weight.
    How did you manage to get a bead cap on the bottom of the green teardrop,and get your wire thru it?

    Thanks so much for your kind comments, Nancy! I had a lot of fun planning and putting together the bracelet.

    The (bright) green bead (it’s a “Doc Spike” from the contest page) came with those specs of color on the rounded part. The trick was how to connect it to the bracelet. It’s drilled, so I threaded a little of the brass chain through the hole and used a brass loop to connect it to the chain that forms the basis of the bracelet. Here’s a close-up to show you what I mean. :-)
