Peanut Butter & Jelly Dreams

About this design:

Another lampwork bead from that $1.00 bag. Watch bezel for a toggle loop. I made the toggle part but I need to redo it. Tan beads are OLD (used some at Christmas in quail necklace). The czech glass squares are from LB.

The bead looked like peanut butter & jelly to me hence the name.

All the kitties, Mousey & ButterBall on the tree. I moved it into the hall. ButterBall is so in love with all the babies.

Sorry I've been more absent than usual. Trying to not go over data usage on my phone. I'm using my data more for employment searches now.


Lampwork glass bead. American dreams czech squares. Tan druks. Red crystals (is that shape a bicone?). Watch bezel. Copper wire. Jump rings.

    Deb, what a totally fabulous bracelet ! Love that you are a bargain hunter (so am I) and love the design of the two-into-one “strands”. Your kitties are just too cute – - wish I lived in your neighborhood so I could come over and play with them ! Hang in there on that job search – - -

    Thanks CB & Granny/Nancy.
    Granny/Nancy I’m excited to see what you want me to make. I’m viewing this as a challenge since I usually just do what I want as the whim hits me. I need a challenge like that as I think it will help my creativity.

    Yum .. yum … yum … most decidedly a PB&J creation. So very cool!

    Just gotta love those BIG kitten ears … oh so adorable. How in the world do you get anything done, I’d be playing with them 24-7. :D

    Very cool. I like the way you’ve blended those 2 colors.You’re so creative to use the watch bezel. Those things usually sit in a drawer for years. LOL ;)
    Don’t you love it when the kitties look into the camera,and pose?

    Deb, this is great! I love it all, but the clasp components are so neat. What gauge wire did you use for the toggle, if I may ask?

    You guys know how much I appreciate the compliments when it’s basically a bargain bracelet!!
    The watch bezels were given to me by a friend. I have bunches and watch bands to match (still trying to figure oit a design). As soon as I saw them I thought “perfect togfle loop!!”. I googled interchangeable watch set & there was one that had cool flower shaped bezels!! WANT!!!
    Susie I cant remember what gauge the wire is. I know I had 24 before but this is either 18 or 20. Not sure…I need work on those toggles.

    Thanks Angela & Gail.
    Gail the bargain tray at Walmart is hit or miss. I’m lucky & have 2 in my town & I often visit the 1 in New Bern when I go see my Mom. Most often there are brass bead caps, spacer beads…sometimes there are cool pendants. These items are discontinued & clearance things. The $2 tray is not as good as the $1 tray either…lol. Happy Bargain hunting!!

    I love that kitty on the left w/his/her mouth open! Probably a boy right! I’ve always wanted to try and make a homemade toggle bar, but I have no patience with that! Let me know how you do it and I may try! I like the name and the design goes perfect w/it!
