Feeling blue

About this design:

Once again, I’m an avid bird watcher and I love bluebirds! I bought these crazy blue rectangle agate beads a couple years ago. Finally found a cool connector that I liked. Please excuse the ball of yarn- I need lessons on staging 🥴


Crazy blue agate ( I think these were LB several years ago.). Tierra cast connector, spacers and clasp.

    Oooo, this design is wonderful! I love how you added the small beads next to the 2-hole spacers. It adds interest. The blue is really intense & gorgeous. I have several types of 2-hole rectangles & now I’m inspired to use them! Great job, Robin!
    Never have to apologize for your pics. It’s clear & upside right. That’s an accomplishment in itself!!

    This is gorgeous. I have a wonderful bluebird that was handmade by a very talented friend. She has had a shop on Etsy but is homeschooling and taking time off right now. I made one necklace a while back using one of her blue birds and maybe I should make a bracelet or sell my bluebird in one of my Destash packages.

    Anyway, this bright blue is exquisite and so is the bracelet.

    Lovely piece, Robin! I think the ball of yarn makes a beautiful background for the bright blue.

    The connectors as spacers work beautifully with the rectangles. You photo improves the bigger it is.

    What did you use to string it?

    Super bracelet! The 2 hole-bars & textured spacers are used in such a great way. This is an eye-catching piece for sure!!
