    KatsAllThat says:

    Totally awesome and I love your buttons. I recognize the buffalo button but I really love the one on the blue bracelet with the gold thread.

  3. Beadaholic
    Beadaholic says:

    Wonderful bracelets….it would be very hard to choose just one!

    Crazy Beader says:

    Great variations on your trademark bracelet, Becky ! The last one is unique – - where did you find the bible locket ?

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Thanks! The locket was at Michaels on a clearance strand of Blue Moon Beads.

    Deb Harding says:

    Oh my gosh Becky! All of these are.fabulous. The 2 aqua ones are my faves though. This is such a great design, I love all the variations.

    ErinM31 says:

    Such beautiful designs and I love how you’ve turned the clasp into the focal piece! My favorites are the first two under “Additional Images” — the first because I love blue and silver, the second because I love the leaf-design button paired with the forest-green beads! :D

    Wow!!! were’d you’d fnd the speed? (menphetomines) or have you had some of these done for awhile?
    By the way – I spelled ‘men….’ phonetically – sort of – LOL.
    And they are REALLY nice, pretty

    Ee-ne-meeney-miney-mo … how difficult to choose. Might one of these be on its way to Zaque? More soon … xo

    Warped Wire Studio says:

    My favs are the green bracelets and buffalo coin design. I like these– I can see why they are a hit!

  15. SquirrelGirl aka Angela
    SquirrelGirl aka Angela says:

    Yes, I will join the green fans. I LOVE those twists, what are they? As always, I love this design you created and that you’ve mixed it up a bit by adding the smaller stones in between. Too cool. I was wanting to make one with the rainbow blue quartz rice I got from LB but I wouldn’t want to step on your toes.

  16. Asia
    Asia says:

    I love them all, can’t pick just one to be my fave :D

    Nancy Mc says:

    Wow,Becky…you have outdone yourself with these lovely works of art. I went down the page,saying”This is my fav!No, WAIT..this one. Nope..the green..wait,hold on,oooh at the blue!” LOL

  18. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Thanks so much, everyone!! Angela-go ahead! Stealing is allowed. :) I have the blue green quartz to try a different shape. I bet the rainbow quartz would look fantastic!
