Promises Kept Bracelet

About this design:

The skeleton key bead was molded by me and then roughed up and antiqued. The faux stone bead was also made by me. All the stones are from Lima and some of the brass findings, too.

    Thank you. I don’t know if you can tell by the pic but, I layered two different bead caps on the beads. I thought it had a nice effect.

    This is a beautiful bracelet. You will never have any orphan beads. Beautiful design, I like the two sizes of bead caps too. Tiny ones and the one that fit the beads right?

    Thanks, everyone.
    jessbell, I’ve been considering trying to sell just my beads. I might list a couple on etsy in the near future to see what happens.

    You really should, your work is really good, if you could do a darker colored one with an ankh, or some other egyptian symbology on it, I would buy it when I could afford to.

Add your thoughts!
