Mr. Ogleby

About this design:

Once again, I find I'm in a design slump. I have plenty of ideas and resources, but I just can't seem to get them to flow. Maybe it's too much stress? Hmmm.
Anyway, I have lots of sticks and wooden petals to use up, so I paired a few with Jess' really cute PC owl. I may redo this as a strung bracelet, but not right now!


PC owl from Sweet Birch Designs, carnelian, turquoise, and cuprite nuggets from friends, wooden petals, moss agate sticks, craft wire, and Vintaj hook.

    Hi Susie, I think this is adorable as is. You can use up your other stuff with more beads. I’m sure you have a variety. I love bracelets that have a variety of colors. Makes it so much more versatile.

    Oh my! Please don’t change a thing! Love the colors, textures, arrangement…everything! If this is what a slump looks like, I can’t wait to see a non-slump piece!

    P.S. I’d be happy to relieve your suffering and remove the object of your displeasure from your presence. :-)

    A really inspiring piece — hope your lack of flow resolves: this bracelet certainly shows nothing of that!

    Great bracelet – - looks inspired to me ! Think this works just the way it is, Susie (but I understand the need to take things apart occasionally – - -)

    Susie this bracelet is just too adorable…but I’ve already told you that. I flows well.
    As far all you sticks/spikes, check out some of Heather Powers’ bracelets…she has several that use lots that I’m sure could be adapted to beads you have. Lots of printable ideas on her website.
