    Wow ! This is my favorite so far, Becky – - think I like the monochromatic look because it’s bold in size and subtle in color. These beads are particularly wonderful, too. You really got some great bargain buttons from Hancock, too !

    This is soooo lovely! It’s at home with denim, or a night on the town. Nothing says elegance like deep blue and silver.

    Hey Becky – love this – wondering how it it would work with flat Czech squares? Would they flip?

  9. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Maybe. I have been tempted to try squares. What might happen is since you can pull the squares close to the leather the leather might hold one side flat against it. I am afraid, though, that they might end up edge out. If I try it I will let you know.

    I love this one, Becky! The iolite(one of my favs) looks great with the leather cord. My screen is screwy…is the cord silver or purple?

    Oh Becky I love this one, I think its my favorite as well. What a great jeans bracelet (since I live in jeans late summer thru winter until late spring.

  12. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    The cord is silver and the linen is navy. I tried plum linen and a few purples in the leather, but the iolite is more blue than purple. There wasn’t a purple cord blue enough or a blue cord purple enough so that’s how I ended up with silver which I love to use a lot of anyway. :)

    I agree with Granny Chick aka Nancy in that this is a great bracelet to wear with jeans. I also love the color of the stones with the silver cord. Of course silver is my favorite color metal. Really had to force myself to start working with copper and brass as well.
