About this design:

The bracelet on the left was made from beads a friend gave me. It was originally a necklace and unfortunately it broke, and these are all she could salvage. The bracelet on the right is one I salvaged from a broken piece I had. I never throw any jewelry away!


The first piece consists of glass beads with silver plated spacers, lobster-claw clasp, strung on TigerTail. The second piece consists of various acrylic beads with gun metal spacer beads. It's also strung on TigerTail with a small toggle clasp.

    They are both very nice. Lucky to get such cool beads from broken jewelry. I especially love the spacer beads on the left but the variety on the right one is interesting.
