About this design:

This piece started out as a goddess bracelet and morphed into a strung and chain bracelet.

My patient beading buddy joined me today.


Jasper 6mm, Swarovski pearls, silver plated chain, double closure

    Gorgeous color and the design is really great. Don’t you just love morphs and happy accidents? :D

    Your beading buddy looks like my velcro kitty, Gomez. I love black and white tuxedo cats. :)

    Your cat looks like a hoot! Cute kitty! I think this turned out marvelously! Where did you get the chain? I have some similar to that, I am almost out, and I can’t remember where I got it.

    Thank you ladies :)

    LRC I too love tuxedos. I have 2 siblings.
    The 1st picture all I could see was an outstretched paw on my bead board and I was cracking up. It was her warning…. pay attn. to me or else! :)

    Peggy..I adore this bracelet!!! The choice of stones is wonderful.I think it has a soft sophisticated earthy look. You could wear that bracelet with anything. The earrings are also lovely. Your puddy tat is just “weak in the knees” cute. =^^=

    Thank you Franny and Nancy.
    Franny – The bowl and table was clean earlier on. Beads and supplies have a way of multiplying in my house.

    Nancy- earthy and sophisticated was just the look I wanted.

    Lovely bracelet! I have one of those furry beading devils. Oh, excuse me beading buddy! Love them tuxedo kitties!

    Love the combination of beads in this! Striking!

    I have a beady-buddy who waits under the table for something to fall (like it always does) – so she can pounce. Sometimes it is a quick pounce & she scampers away, or else the bead gets batted around the room for a bit first. :)
