Bracelets for the Natural Gals


About this design:

I have been making colorful pieces for the store. I wanted to have something for my 'natural' customers.

Components:

Czech beads all from Lima Beads. Copper focal from a scrapyard. Agate focal from my stash. Picture Jasper beads and gold hemp from Lima Beads.

    Oh-o-o, I AM a natural gal. Love them. Love what you did with the copper; looks simple – like I could do it …. ? It looks like you used a pair of round nosed pliers and waht else to bend it? Or if I’m being too nosy tell me so

    Sonja J says:

    Stunning pieces! I can’t decide which one I like more…both are so pretty! These look like they’d pair really well with summer fashions…a simple dress or a pair of jeans and a tee shirt…I can picture it now! Great job-keep it up! =^___^=
