A Tweet RAK

About this design:

After posting the bracelet about the 3 little birdies. I was contacted by a fellow Lima beader asking me if I would like more of the oval connectors. I'm not sure if she wants to me named. She knows who she is. Well, I said yes I would put them to good use. So she sent me all of these pictured below. A generous RAK. So I made this bracelet similar yet different than the other one.
Thank You so Much! What a generous random act of kindness. You are so sweet!


Lima- gunmetal rollo chain, oval and daisy Czech glass beads. From my stash: Oval connector, cathedral black beads, garnet round beads, antique silver daisy spacers, misc. metal beads and toggle.

    Thanks so much ladies. I really appreciate your kind comments.
    Asia, The owl connector sound like a fun piece to play with. When you find the time to make that up. I hope you’ll share it.
    Julie…I used these Czech Glass Purple Silk Picasso Oval w/ Star Window – currently out of stock.
    The description says purple but they look red with the cool patina. And are darker than the appear in the Lima photo. Which was fine with me. The Merlot daisy’s seemed to go nicely with them. But there they sat, not being used and no plans for them. And then it just came together.
    I apologize for my poor picture quality.
