    Lovely work! I especially like the top one with the brass and red leaves — a great balance of harmony and contrast! :)

    They are all so gorgeous, Angela! Love how you mixed all the elements in each one, so they each have their own unique identity!

    :) I love stretchy bracelets. They are so cooperative at 7:00 AM when I’m getting ready for work!
    In the first, I do like the bead caps on the larger crystals that match the leaf.
    My favorite, however, is the last. The blues and creamy-yellow are so pretty and soothing.

    Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone! I think these are a fun diversion from the sometimes frustrating process of creating something new. I had a great time making them.
    Julie, I should have known you’d like the last one. ;) It reminds me of Florida. I miss so much the beach where we spent last year, Bonsteel, on the Treasure Coast. That charm I added sort of reminds me of some treasure coin we WISH we could have found. :)
