Blue Sky and Garden Green

About this design:

Although I always look forward to fall this time of year, I dread the loss of my garden. I really enjoy the time spent under a blue sky in my green garden.


Jump rings for the chainmaille weave, faceted Peridot, Blue Quartz rectangular tubes (LB), 8mm Wooden Jasper (LB), and Czech Glass.

    Beautiful fall blue sky and green bracelet as reminders of warm weather in the northern parts of our country.

    Kye, your bracelet is beautiful. Love all the texture!. It’s hard to pull your plants! One plant that has been just wonderful this year is climbing spinach. It has to go on a trellis or fence. Great taste. Clusters of purple seed pods( I’m saving). If you ever wanted dye anything purple- this would work!

    Beautiful bracelet. You’ve captured the blue sky and green garden colors here to remind you until next year.

    I always love to see your chainmaille designs…the colors and simplicity are what makes this bracelet. Just a great all around bracelet. I hated to see my garden go, as well, I love my Snapdragons! But it’s going to be soon…time to bring my large Christmas Cactus in…which will burst into blooms soon enough.

    Kye, your wirework is so great, I like how you surrounded those Blue Quartz rectangles (it looks like there are 2? – so gorgeous) and your choice of beads. and I like the “less is more effect” – fantastic bracelet!

    A wonderful reminder of spring and summer for the coming seasons. I love it. The parts go together so nicely. Love the faceted peridot.

    Kye, I like how the blues & greens contrast so nicely with the bronzed rings & wire. Love the clustered tubes connected to the chainmaille–a wonderful technique to finish off those end rings. This will be nice to wear when all the trees & greenery start to die off and you need a little ‘shot’ of summer memories to keep you warm during the cold months. The last of our zucchini plants died last week and we are so sad–gonna miss all the fresh grown veggies.
