Wild and Crazy Guy.

About this design:

I was inspired by a guy I saw jogging . He was wearing an orange shirt and red shorts. Crazy color combo,but it made me think of my new beads. I decided to incorporate it into a stretchie. with my new African Glass,and tone it down with Smokey Quartz.
FYI...If you haven't tried the rhodium plated spacer beads from Lima,give them a try. They're gorgeous.


Stretch cord 1MM,Smokey Quartz 12mm,African Glass 10mm,glass donuts,Center Glass bead from Lima 14mm,and Tierra Cast Rhodium (plated) Nugget Heishi 5mm from Lima.

    Oh Nancy, this is a lovely combination of colors! The African glass looks fantastic paired with the Smokey Quartz! I like the smooth and rough stones together. Isn’t it cool to keep our eyes open for inspiration? Love yours! :) Also, your pictures look nice on the different backgrounds. I’m still experimenting with different ones, but always pick the lighter. Beautiful bracelet! :)

    Nancy, this bracelet jumped on its own into my faves. It is absolutely outstanding!!! The recycled glass looks like Life Savers and Jawbreakers. Keep those eyes open and the new color combos coming.

    Thank you so much ladies! I know..red and orange? It is fun though. I like wearing it.
    I also thought of life savers,when these beads arrived. They were freebies,from a girl on Etsy.
    Neat-o! I bought a truck load of focals from Lima,and they’re awesome.
    I appreciate the photo comments very much as well.
    Hope this inspires someone else to do red and orange together. :)

    I thought,”Gee,your Mum dresses you funny.”
    Hey Becky..Gumdrops indeed! I think we all need a trip to the candy counter. The big gum drops with the refined sugar? Oh yeah!
