Floral Carving

About this design:

Trying to organize a little better made the lampwork rectangles get my attention. An LB friend was destashing and sent them my way. As well as the little round beads here...picture jasper maybe? So while watching Stargate last night I made this.

Please excuse the BRIGHT blue background! Nothing else.would let the camera focus enough to show the detail on the carved beads.


Tan lampwork rectangle. Carved "cinnabar" round bead. Carved "ivory" rondell. Picture jasper (?) rounds. Wood daisy spacers. Wood wedge bead. S-lon cord.

    Deb, I love this bracelet. Having 3 different focal beads makes this so very interesting and then the flower beads that also tie the 2 strands together makes it perfect. And what a cute flower clasp. All in all a great winner of a bracelet.

    I love the way you stacked those components for your clasp to act like a button. Very fall-like and stylish. Everything used goes perfectly together. Well-done a favorite indeed!

    Thanks everyone…you are always so generous.
    The little wooden flower spacers are one of those lucky $1.00 finds at Wally World. I’ve found them twice. Looking for more…always.

    Such a beautiful earthy bracelet Deb. I especially like your stacked bead button. So awesome!

    BTW your beads look exactly like some picture jasper I got from LB awhile back.

    Wowza Deb! Absolutely cool! I adore those flower spacers and the clasp! They remind me of being a little hippie chick on the beach in the ’70s with an updated vibe for the here and now. Those focal beads are also fabulous. I especially like the lampwork one.
