Starry Night

About this design:

I saw this design on another site and purchased all the beads. I then realized how little my anger management class had helped. lol. I had to walk away several times during the day. Wrapped loops on that scale are too much! this bracelet took me about a week to complete because my brain, hands, temperament were taxed to the limit! I tried to polish it very well before taking the picture, but to no avail!


Black pearls, charcoal pearls, CAL, silver night, crystal satin Swarovski bicones and rounds, silver glass beads and silver findings.

    All your hard work paid off, ’cause it looks great! I have done alot of wire wrapped dangles and I know they can be frustrating, but this turned out well. Love the mix and the colors.

    It looks fantastic!!! Another way to make these is to wrap all the beads separately and then scoop them onto jumprings and make your own chain in the process.

    This was the first and only time I have actually wrapped the links directly on to the chain. I prefer just using jump rings like you said.

    I love bracelets that are “fully loaded”. I have done many in the past and they are all a hit. Yours is really lovely.

    I do like the “all dangles” style once in a while, but like I said they are insanity to put together.

    When I make pieces like yours people ask me if they drive me nuts? I tell them if they did it would be a very short trip! But to tell the truth for me this type of design is very therapeutic & relaxing. A sure sign that I am fricken crazy!!! Oh well, my husband says I should always go with my strengths and being crazy is what keeps me from going insane. Whatever works, right?
