About this design:

After seeing Wanda's necklace I had to share this with you girls, It is pink what is not my usual style, but I wanted to go for a vintage feel in this piece, pictures have to be re-done.

Components:

Brazilian Amazonite, Perls, Czech glass flowers from Lima Beads, Lucite, Pink Aventurine and other Czech glass from my stash. My own polymer clay bead, headpins and copper clasp.

    Wow, this is exquisite! I’m in awe of how you did those flowers as well as the large polymer flower.

    FANTASTIC!! Is that a hook clasp under the flower and around the “button” you created? I can’t see it on my computer.

    SYD Sydney H says:

    Ditto to everybody else – BUT – the czech flower cluster with the mini beads sticking out of it –
    would those beads irritate your arm after awhile and make imprints?

    It’s a beautiful piece

    Gorgeous! What a beautiful way to adorn your wrist in the summertime!

    Asia says:

    Thank you everyone :D Becky, this is a swirl clasp that has a hook under, the pictures are wrong, but the light is terrible right now, dark and gloomy and I posted it by mistake on Etsy. Syd, LOL the little beads sticking out are handmade copper ball pins and the bracelet would have to be more than skin tight in order to be uncomfortable. I don’t wear jewllery myself, but I always test drive my designs, ;) :D

    Saw this in your Etsy shop, Asia, and think is is just amazing ! Although the photos looks great to me, understand how hard it is to get the light just right. Can only imagine the hours of work this represents – -a beautiful design.

    Hi Asia; this is in answer to your Mom Day’s ’14 comment on my 2 button bracelets – I do sleep, but not until about 12a.m. to 10:a.m. My husband’s retired so then am I – LOL.

    Some of my postings I have made years ago, but, yes, I do bead everyday. We’re retired, kids are gone so it’s all I have to do (well, there is house work, but I do AS LITTLE of that as possible)………..

  26. SYD Sydney H
    SYD Sydney H says:

    And I must say – for being into beading for not quite a year yet – you have really gone to town; I’ve been in it for 5 years and you are way ahead of me.
