About this design:

Hello LB! It was just my birthday, and to celebrate my family took me to a local bead show in PA. It was my first bead show ever and it was so cool! I found the most awesome beads, but boy is it hard to chose from so many beautiful items when you have a fixed spending amount. So I'm gonna post some of the cool things I got at the show, but this is a spring time inspired piece I started before the show. It was a bit of an experimenting process and I ended up using the leaf toggle backwards because I liked how it hung a little instead of the usual straight way to use a toggle. So I hope that looks ok. And as far as all the components came together, I hope it doesn't look messy. Let me know what you all think. I love the feedback : )

Components:

Maroon irish waxed linen, lime Czech pansy beads from LB, bronze leaf toggle, vintage seed bead mixes and various Czech beads.

    Love it! I have those little flowers in different colors but the green is wonderful. Great design. I don’t think it looks messy. It is boho.

    Awesome bracelet. I love the way you used the toggle, a little MacGyverism going on there! This bracelet would look fantastic with this necklace I am getting ready to make. (earthenwood green flying bird from clearance sale).
