"First Memory"

About this design:

This is my first memory wire bracelet.
(About time)! Feel like I'm at summer camp...LOL! Found some great 6" bead strands for $1.50 each,last night,so I thought I'd get some memory wire,and give it a try.
No idea what the main beads are,but they sure are pretty shades of blue and green. Of course..being the earring lady,I couldn'd resist adding a few wrapped loop dangles. The dangles are 2 shades of Blue Quartz,and one little ole Apatite.
Hopefully..I'll work my way up to more finished ends,and longer bracelets. the picture that looks shocking blue,was taken with my flash. I just wanted to see how it would look.


Assorted unidentified beads,Blue Quartz,Apatite,memory wire,6 mm jump rings,and SS ball head pins.

    Don’t you just love mystery beads? They are right up there with orphan beads! What ever your beads happen to be they certainly look great in this bracelet. :)

    Thanks so much,LRC. I know they’re dyed,as I saw a little blue on my wrist. (oops). I just soaked them in water. What the hey..they’re still pretty,and were so lonely,in the discount pile. Fun to play with,for $1.50. ;)
