Funky bracelet

About this design:

A friend brought some beads over to my house the other day to see what could be done with them. After playing around with my stash, we decided to pair them with an 8" scrap of funky chain. Very easy to make and it looks a bit Southwesterny to me.


Antique silver type chunky chain (from LB years ago), turquoise pillow beads, antique silver lobster clasp, 26 gauge wire.

    Beautiful bracelet! The beads are different and do look Southwestern. The links only add to the Southwestern feel.

    Love the Turquoise composite beads–and–Love those fantastic links you used with them! The links have just the right amount of substance to hold their own next to the beads. No part takes away from the other. Very nice! :)
