Coming up Roses

About this design:

This was inspired just by the rose gold curved tube ! I then added varying sizes of pink freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, rose quartz, and a large pink glass rondel to set it off !


Freshwater pearls, Rose Quartz, Rhodochrosite rondells, Swarovski crystals

    How elegant and beautiful. I usually don’t like the pink color , but in this case look gorgeous.

    Michelle, I forgot to ask where you found tubes in rose gold. I’ve found them so far in sterling silver, silver plate, gold filled, copper, brass, and pewter. I’d love to find some in rose gold, but haven’t had any luck yet. :D

    That tube bead is really the focal point of the bracelet – I see a lot of beaded bracelets, but not too many with tubes – you have used the beads to set off the tube!

    Lynn ~ I found the tubes quite by chance ! They were from the Southampton Bead Shop, here in the UK !! They have a web-site –
    ~ hope this helps you out !

    Yolanda, just seen your comment ~ it’s easy, just do what you normally do to make a bracelet, attached the bead wire to a clasp, add whatever beads you like ~ sort out the ones that go together color-wise and if you have rondelles in varying sizes put them opposite each other on your bead board to get the symmetry and get beading !!! I expect you’ll be surprised how well things go together if you experiment ! Let me know how you get on and I hope to see your design here soon !

Add your thoughts!
