Blue on blue


About this design:

Does anyone remember the song Blue on blue? I think Bobby Vinton sang it. Anyway, I was listening to oldies when I was beading- that was one of the songs. Gee whiz I’m showing my age!

Components:

Aqua terra beads, seed beads, 18 g copper wire, copper chain and findings.

    What a beauty! Copper was a wonderful choice to use with the Aqua Terra. I especially like the way you connected the gorgeous focal with the coiled seed beads.

    Very pretty Robin. The copper and aqua look great together and the little charm is so fun.

    Beautiful! I also love the coiled seed beads around the connection of the focal and the bracelet! It is a dreamy beach bracelet for any time of the year. I would be daydreaming for hours on end of days at the beach. I do remember Bobby Vinton and also his Blue Velvet. I’m also showing my age.

    Great bracelet….and yes I do remember the song! It’s nice to know there are other old beaders here. I love the little pine cone dangle…nice touch!

    Wonderful bracelet! Love the coiled seed beads and how they add a little something special to the focal piece–was the first thing to catch my eye. I really like the copper chain addition, and of course, that cute pinecone! :)

    “…..And I still can see blue velvet through my tears.” Vintage music for vintage beaders. Vintage Bobby Vinton fits right in, too. :D

    The color of the beads you’ve chosen is so perfect with copper. You have created a fantastic design with great color. Love it!
