Moonlit Garden


About this design:

This piece evolved as I put it together and I like the organic look it ended up with. I like the aquamarine beads as accent to the Czech Glass Dark Garden collection and the greenish cast of the Parawire hematite works well with the collection too.

Components:

Czech Glass Dark Garden Flowers, Czech Glass Dark Garden Round 8mm, Aquamarine, Parawire Hematite 18 and 22 gauge, Black Irish Waxed Linen

    That is very inspiring – I have some hematite wire but have held off using it. The wrapped beads are perfect in this. Yes, I like the way you did this bracelet!

    Cool! Love the wire wrapped beads with the etching in the flower beads! How did the coloring on the hematite wire hold up while you were working with it? I’ve yet to find a dark wire that doesn’t chip super easily!

    what a PERFECT job of wire wrapping; those flower beads are striking; are they the same on both sides?

    You have inspired me. I recently picked up a few of the Czech flower beads in a different color and made earrings… then immediately went back to buy more. Next step… a bracelet! I think I’m going to add some Czech leaf beads to mine.

    Thank you all so much for your kind words! :)
    @Gail, you definitely want to work nylon pliers only with this wire! Every coated wire I’ve tried chipped easily even with careful use of metal tools but with nylon it is no problem!
    @Sydney, yes, the Czech flower beads have the design on both sides, just with slight variation as there is between beads as well.
    @Sladochkin, awesome! I look forward to seeing what you create! :)

    Gorgeous! Makes me think of a midnight rendezvous in a Victorian garden, like something out of a gothic romance. (and I mean gothic as in the style of writing, although I suppose it would work both ways) Lovely! Keep it up! =^__^=
