Just Foolin' Around

About this design:

I've been doing "serious" designs for a while--time to do something fun. Foxhill Designs VT's POD "Chartreuse Surprise" gave me the opportunity to buy a lot of these elements, so thanks, Jolene!


Handmade copper chain, copper clasp, mixed green fire agates (inherited), yellow jade, many types of Czech glass--all LB (except clasp and fire agates).

    Thank you! I wore the bracelet on Tuesday, and it is a lot of fun. The dangles are long, so it reminds me of a gown with a floaty skirt.

Add your thoughts!
