The Bracelet! Beaded Bracelet

I forgot all about posting the bracelet I finished on Sunday when I was teaching at the local bead shop. I LOVE this bracelet. A lot of the students did it in two different colors of seed beads. It is very pretty like that too. On mine I just used silver lined gold and the "eye" of the peacock part is an Amethyst Swarovski bicone. Those bicones are SO pretty. The cut of them catches the light just right and gives them an even richer look to them. I will be putting this bracelet in my web store. I need to get the photo to the webmaster so he can re size it and post it for me. You can find more details about it there in a couple of days. It will fit a 6-1/2" wrist. When I teach I give each student a strip of paper and have them wrap it around their wrist and cut it exactly the size of their wrist. This is how big they make their bracelets (if it's for them) and adding the clasp and clasp beads creates enough length to allow the bracelet to have some movement on the wrist but not be tight. You write your name on these strips or the name of whoever's wrist you measured and put them in an envelope and you will always have their measurements and can make them a gift without giving the secret away! I have several slips in an envelope with friends names on them. But I haven't made too many from that envelope! Maybe come Christmas. But I have all summer to think about that one, huh? Click on the photo for a closer view. Anyway, watch the web store in a couple of days for the bracelet info.   
Thanks SO much, Wanda
