Today I am going to break away from the cards and card projects to share with you a bracelet that I made. I am going to be posting this on my beading website The Shape of Beads to Come. It is available in my web store.
What I love most about this bracelet is that it will fit most wrists. If your wrist is between 7" and 8" it will fit perfectly. I have a smaller wrist and I can bend the metal to make it fit but I didn't because I knew I was making it to sell.
We have a family we buy for at Christmas time. I am told they live nearby (in our town) and there are 5 children. These children are getting bigger and a Fischer Price toy just doesn't cut it anymore. So we need to buy more age appropriate gifts and of course they cost more. So I thought I would make and sell some bracelets to raise the funds so we can get these kids nice gifts this Christmas.
So back to the bracelet. It is made using black 1.5mm cubes and #15 silver lined clear seed beads. A Briolette is in the middle of each end of the bracelet along with Swarovski bicone beads.
This bracelet is not my original design. I got the pattern from the April/May issue of Beadwork magazine. It's one of my favorite magazines, that and Bead & Button or any other magazine that catches my fancy at the time!!! LOL
I'll have a fun project for you to view tomorrow. Yes, a stamping one!!! I'm off to post this on my beading website and then get it posted in my web store.
Thank you for visiting today,
Just gorgeous Wanda! ~chrisReplyDelete
