    Great blue bracelets. Love your use of the peanut beads for the clasp and decorations. Wonderful use of such a variety of beads. I keep noticing something new every time I look.

    Excellent! Awesome beads make for some awesome bracelets! Love the subdued knots and how they actually play into the design. What ply wax linen are you using? The knots look nice & chunky. The peanuts & wooden flowers are a favorite. Please don’t tell me those flowers where one of your finds in the W bin?! I so enjoy seeing all the little touches of nature in your work. I do have a question: do you get charged import or other fees when you order from Grubbi? Fantastic work as always–I adore chunky bracelets & am in love with all of these!! 8O

    Thank you both Beady and Crystal. This is the first time I had made chunky bracelets like this with all artist’s beads.

    Crystal yes those little wood flowers are from the $1 bin at WM!! I’m thinking I need to put some blue seed beads on those jump rings also because it looks a little plain.
    I used 4 ply waxed linen from LB. The hemp cord was at WM.

    Honestly I cannot remember if I get charged those. I know the prices are listed in lbs so whatever it adds up to is always more in US dollars. But not exorbitantly so. Her beads are totally worth it. And it doesn’t really take that long.

    All three bracelets are so beautiful. I think you’ve done a wonderful job designing with those beautiful ceramic artist beads. My favorite one is the 3rd bracelet. I think the beads in that one are particularly striking and your design just brings them all together beautifully. Wow!

    I adore the first bracelet. Its all blue and since I live in blue jeans, that style bracelet is perfect for me. However the other are lovely as well. I love all your work.

    Thank you Althea. While the 1st bracelet is my favorite the beads in the 3rd one are ones I made a point to collect. I do like it but I feel like it’s missing something.
    Granny Nancy all 3 bracelets are the same “style”, chunky knotted. You must mean color. Thank you for the compliment. I’ve always wondered if you still had & wore this necklace

    I just added to bracelet 3, seed beads to the wood flowers and I think that is what that bracelet was missing. Please excuse the crappy photo on the napkin.

    Bracelet 1 is my favorite, I like how you used the peanuts to make the fastener loop and the Jesse bead is striking. All of the bracelets are in one of my favorite color combinations. Brown, turquoise/aqua and copper. Nice work using your collection of artist beads.
