Dazzling Bracelet

About this design:

Well I bought these triangle like seed beads with this design in mind. However, I did not have the clasp until the last minutes so it really didn't fit into my original design. Now that it is done I love the way it looks but it is too big!! The addition of the big clasp made it too big...bummer

    This piece is adorable!! It looks like a deep garnet color? Love it, but I hate when I finish a piece and it is not the right size!! Uhhh, I can relate :)

    Caryn, this is such a beautiful bracelet — love the color and the clasp is fantastic! :D

    Sigh. I often have this same problem, though mine tend to end up too small sometimes. Too big, too small — I just need to aim for something in the middle! LOL

    Caryn, I love the design! The cones and clasp go really well together, and finish this off nicely. What a bummer it is too big! I can totally relate – I have a tendency to design too big too – then I also know I can’t keep the piece – maybe that’s just as well? Better to sell it to someone who can wear it, and try again!

    This is lovely. I didn’t think the clasp was too big. It looks like part of the overall design.

    Jade, this is a stunning bracelet. I always hate to re-do anything, but I think I would in this case because it would kill me not to be able to wear it – Beautiful!!!
