The Pink Planets

About this design:

Hi Ladies,
Almost embarassed to post "just a stretch" bracelet,with all the talent in this gallery..BUT you girls know my passion for pretty stones.
I wanted to share these delicious Pink Opal Rounds that I ordered. I'm fascinated with all the striations and patterns in every bead. Natch,they remind me of planets.( AND strawberry ice cream of course) tee hee. :+))
Thank you to the miners in Peru!
PS. 2nd pic is in natural light.


Pink Peruvian Opal rounds 12mm, little black glass beads from my stash,SP rounds,and 1mm stretch cord.

    Don’t be embarrassed; be PROUD; i can’t make stretch bracelets. It looks like you tried the blue felt in the pic with the ‘purple’ color. I ‘ve tried the b lue and it turns purple everytime, so I don’t anymore.

    I’m loving this Nancy! Your colors, and design are great and many people WANT the stretch bracelets because it’s difficult for them to work clasps due to arthritis. You’ve provided them with an elegant alternative. Those stones are to die for. Peruvian opal is one of my favs. :)

    Thanks so much,ladies. I always appreciate your comments. My 2BFF’s love the stretchies because they have arthritis,and they like to stack em up.
    These are so much fun and fast to do.
    I’m glad other peeps love the P Opals. They’re such interesting and inexpensive stones.

    Pink opal is on my “short list” and I don’t care what stringing method is used! And for those of us with hand issues…or coordination issues :) … stretchy is just right! Gorgeous bracelet! :)
