Summertime Blues Bracelet

About this design:

Thank you, Ali! Your necklace design was what I needed to get rolling with all my recycled glass! I had a similar idea but could not figure out quite how to pull it together. I love using the oblong ring and blue triangle as a "toggle." The bracelet has to be big enough to slide over your hand as it is always closed. In place of knots I used Toho beads! Planning several more variations!


Recycled glass, 2 lengths of 15" 4 ply waxed linen, Toho beads
