Pass The Mustard


About this design:

I fell in love with the new Mustard cork cord and slides at LB, so I just had to order some. Here's the result. Simple, but I love it!

Components:

From LB: Mustard cork cord, antique brass and silverplated asst'd. slides, antique brass cord ends. Jumprings and lobsterclaw clasp from HobLob.

    Okay – this is something else I’ll have to get used to; they look like dog collars. I don’t know if you ‘older’ gals – back in the ’50′s the REAL dog collar bracelets. They were actual dog collars – with the D ring and a name plate you could engrave a name on. It was about ’55 maybe.
    I never bought one; didn’t care for them.

    SYD Sydney H says:

    Oh, by the way- you did a very nice job on this; looks better than the ’50′s ones – LOL

    I like it! Very nice. I was debating whether to buy some cork when it was on sale.

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    I got me some, too, not in mustard, though. This looks very cool!! i have to get at mine soon. :)

    Beadaholic says:

    Thanks SYD…I am never quite sure of your comments! LOL Don’t know if they are positive or a dis! Anyway, I like it and that’s all that matters, right? P.S…I was a tot back in the 50′s, so I don’t remember the dog collar thing! LOL

    I love this! And the yellow is such an unusual and mood lifting color.

    I love that cork as well. This is very hip.

    Asia says:

    I love the color, this is one cool bracelet, even if collar inspired LOL :D

    CAS says:

    Very cool! I bought some of the cork too (Mustard, Saddle and Natural). I’d been eying it on another site, and when LB got it I could no longer resist … “resistance” being “futile” … especially since LB’s prices were better, the other site sells it by the inch … ouch. The other site has some really cool sliders though … LB, maybe you could add more … hummm …. :)

    Beadzilla aka Wanda says:

    I love how you mixed up the metals here! Very cool bracelet! Is it a double wrap?

  12. Gail Layne
    Gail Layne says:

    Love the mixed metals and I don’t think it looks anything like a dog collar! Cool design!

  13. Beadaholic
    Beadaholic says:

    Thanks so much everyone! WANDA: nope, just a simple single wrap! LOL

    Janet Miriam says:

    I L.O.V.E. this! The color is great and I love the assortment of slides! Funny I didn’t think collar, just very cool bracelet!

    beadinggma says:

    I have to try the cork, yours is fab!!!

  16. SquirrelGirl aka Angela
    SquirrelGirl aka Angela says:

    I am so loving this cork! You’ve created a fabulous piece here and like Wanda said, your mix of metals makes it! I just placed an order and I wanted to get some of this but it was going to get too pricy with all the slides and clasps I would want to go with it.
