Summer Waves

About this design:

Usually I struggle with asymetrical designs, but this bracelet just came together magically for me. As with so many of my recent casual bracelets, none of these components came from Lima Beads. Though I posted a Fresh Pick today with the things I would use if I were ordering from this website - - -


Various beads from my stash, including a blue and green swirled lampwork bead 20mm, Czech turquoise druks, lime ceramic and glass beads, and gold-plated heishi and clasp.

    Thanks Wanda, Deb, Laud and Nancy ! And Nancy, I would love to do more pieces like this, but honestly, when I “work” at an asymetrical design it never comes together. Once in a while, I just get out some beads and they seem to put themselves in a non-patterned order – - – but I keep trying !
