    I always really like your pieces but I think this is my all time favorite! Those spacers are to die for, the headpins too. Love the clasp, it’s just right for the theme of the piece and the colors are fabulous. Soooo, when are you opening a store??

    I actually opened at the very end of my vacation on August 20, it’s on Etsy “WinterBirdStudio”

    BTW, I got the idea during my sleep, got up to right it down, this is called addiction, when you are dreaming beads ;)

    I love them Asia. I agree the double headpin spacers are so cool.

    I like how you added the Indonesian glass and tear drops which add a nice burst of color to complement the dARKER SHADES.

    ditto, ditto, ditto!!! I have seen wire used to wrap and braid around leather and fiber and always wondered how flexible the entire piece was. This seems to be a much better way to do it–with separate pieces of wire so there is a gap in between. You know we are going to steal this! And I want the Vessonite one. :) I have some of that luscious stone myself and it is gorgeous!

    Also, it’s just too funny, but I was working on a 2 strand leather and wrap bracelet last night myself! Mine has waxed linen instead of wire. I’ll post when I am done, but we must have been having similar dreams! :)

    All 3 bracelets are awesome Asia. Love your coiled wire spacers. The middle one, Misty Woods?, looks very beachy. Weird, like Becky I have similiar stuff I’ve been messing with. I’ve been making bunches of coils with that colored wire I’ve had for ages. Its useless as as far as bracelet constuction because it breaks but it makes great beads. Don’t have any designs using them yet, just playing while watching a movie.

    Congrats on your new store on etsy, Asia ! These are fabulous bracelets – - you are one fantastic designer, plus you have the patience to execute those ideas from your dreams.

    All these bracelets are lovely; the third is my favorite. Gorgeous!

    Love the coils. Rena K. has a tut. for making teenie coils for crimp covers. I was so happy to have stumbled on her design for that, and have used it on several bracelets. Have used smaller coils as well as spacers :)

    BEAUTIFUL!!!! To me all of the bracelets look like they have branches. How interesting they are. Such exotic designs and . . . The word “beautiful” is the only word I can find to describe your work here, Asia. Well, OK, and stunning too.

    Yet another comment . . . it is for sure an addiction . . . I often do the same thing and rather than write it down, I just go see how i can create what I am dreaming of. The materials we can use are so wonderful and YOU, Asia have a very special talent here . . . You will be making lots of money on your designs on Etsy. Could you perhaps include a link to your Etsy store . . . maybe I can just look up your business name and find it that way . . . I am drooling from your designs, these are the best yet!!!

    Asia, I love love love the 3rd one…. the green one… which Becky did not claim, so I am claiming!!! Love the little flowers among the spirals!

    Thank you so much everyone, you make me blush, I’m really having fun with designing even in my sleep. BW Sara, If you go to my profile I had changed my store name to the link that will take you there instantly :D

    These are so beautiful Asia! I love your coil spacers especially with the ball ends you added. Just like Lois D, I recently saw the coils used to cover crimp tubes and liked it. But I like this even more!

  23. Beadzilla aka Wanda
    Beadzilla aka Wanda says:

    These are both stunners! Love your coil spacers and clasp as always.
