“summer garden party...”

  

Description from J Yee smart chick: I finally picked the color scheme for the bracelet project I'm working on - black a color I'm challenging myself to use, and some light green beads in different finishes... sure wish it could include all these other kinds of beads like the vintaj and pistachio pearls... :)

    it’s a fun design that I got off the Beadalon website, it uses their beading wire and you alternate stringing 3 different sizes of beads in sections so it “waves”… the title of the design is “waves and donuts”, waves if you do alternate the big beads, then donuts if you don’t… yep will try to post pics as I get to doing it… it’s a way for me to keep experimenting w/ different colors I normally don’t use :)

    nice! the black will add drama and sophistication to the bracelet, methinks.

    thanks chickies…. I tried black w/ orange, black w/ purple… but figured I liked black and the minty lime/light peridot look best :)

    Joyce, I went to the Beadalon site & looked up the pattern you referred to. It is gorgeous! Are you going to make the matching earrings?

    thank you, isnt that “waves and donuts” design beautiful… right now I plan to make the bracelet… and also wondered if I could make shorter wavy strips as earrings instead of the “donut” pattern they show… :)

    thanks much chickies!!!!! I did make this “waves” bracelet w/ black and light green beads, it turned out really cute, only took me 3 tries :) cuz I mixed up the last step where the 2 wires are supposed to go in opposite directions, LOL!!!! :) … now I’m making another one w/ black and pink beads, but notice – bead sizes aren’t consistent between sizes of beads… in my black & green bracelet I used mostly fire polished, vs the black/pink, where I tried some pressed glass beads, the fire polished 6 mm are definitely between the 6 mm pressed glass beads in size, ie fire polished 6 mm are bigger than the 6 mm pressed gladd and smaller than the 8 mm pressed glass arrrggghhhh… gotta post pics of the black and green bracelet :)

    That is way cool. Love it.

  30. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    I’m now working on another just like it, only in black and pink. I also thought if I just wove a smaller strip of maybe a couple of the “wave” sections and attached a dangle at one end, and an earring finding at the other, that would make great earrings! :) these “wave” segments would be great for necklace sections too :)

  31. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Joyce, your waves bracelet is beautiful! I love the black & green and think that a black & pink would also be lovely!
    Great idea about 2 smaller wave sections making earrings!
    Thank you for sharing!

  32. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Very nice bracelet, Joyce! I think it would fall nicely against the wrist and actually would make a really great anklet, too! :)

  33. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    thanks sparkle and crazy chick,

    it’s a very fun bracelet to make, goes pretty quick! now that I’ve actually figured out how to make the “waves” version I think I would rather make “waves” earrings to match the bracelet, rather than the “donut” earrings they show :) … I just like “dangly” earrings better…
    cuban queen I agree the bracelet falls nicely against the wrist and would definitely make a cute anklet too! :)

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Joyce = the bracelet is beautiful. I am so excited you are using black! I do remember our conversations a few weeks ago. I love the contrast with the bright green! great job!

  35. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    thank you Jeanne, I love getting to experiment w/ colors this way, the design itself is way cute and can be made w/ 2, 4, or more colors because of the three different bead sizes for the “wave” sections! and sure do appreciate all the encouragement from folks here too, to expand my color choices!!!! :)
