A toast to "Little Round Chick."

About this design:

I've been holding on to some 2 tone glass beads that Little Round Chick said were her favs.I'm glad that I ordered some. I was on the web,looking for fancy drink ideas,and saw a yummy looking drink. I thought of these pretty beads right away,and here's the happy colorful result.
Simple stretch design,but I like it.
So,here's to you,LRC. Bottoms up! :)


Czech Fire Polished Dual coated Fuschia/Cantaloupe 6MM,Cherry Quartz ,both from Lima. SP spacers,Cherry Quartz 4mm,and Lampwork bead.

    Thanks,E.M. There’s something so “refreshing” abut orange and pink together.
    (Blood Orange juice,Limoncello Liqueur,Vodka,and a splash of soda water).
    OMG…so yummy! ;)

    Such a simple design… but I’m a firm believer in Keep It Simple. I love stretchy bracelets because they are SO cooperative at 6:30 AM!!! And so fun and easy to wear.
    I have to admit that I’m not a pink or orange person, but I would wear this in a heartbeat! It’s so pretty!!! (And a great idea for using those odds&ends of lampwork and Pandora beads!!! I’m so stealing your idea! :)

    Nancy Mc says:

    Thanks Julie. I’m flattered that you would steal from me,as I consider your work to be “da bomb.” :)

    This looks great! The spacers keep it crisp & elegant.

    How long do you string before knotting into a circle?

  20. Nancy Mc
    Nancy Mc says:

    Hey thanks,ladies.
    Eeka..I must admit that i never measure,when doing the stretch bracelets. I just keep going until it feels right on my wrist. Then I cut the cord,do a double or triple square knot,and hopefully hide it in the focal. ;)
