    This is a very lovely bracelet. Looks like lots of work. I applaud any one whose eye sight allows them to work with little beads. About the only way I could do something like this would be with 6/0 beads and it wouldn’t nearly as elegant. :)

    LRC, I finally broke down and bought a magnifier light because of the eyesight thing, and I have to say it’s probably one of the best purchases I’ve made!

    Gorgeous, is this based on right angle weave?

    OneOfAKindJewels4u says:

    Yes, it actually is badsed on RAW, but I mofified the embellishments a little. Liked the “criss cross” idea. It is a very fun pattern to work out, however it takes about 3 steps to complete then to put on the clasp. my spring shows are going to be starting soon, so I am not sure on how much I would charge for these. We live in the Pittsburgh pa region. Any price ideas?

    This is a beautiful bracelet design and the colors are so soft and delicate! Your work is amazing! :D

    Several of the ladies here are from PA and the surrounding states — perhaps they would be able to help you with pricing suggestions.
