A couple of new bracelets...I really should stop only making bracelets! They just come so naturally to me - perhaps I'm just too lazy to go the whole hog and turn it into a necklace?! I think that my own personal challenge shall be to make sure the next picture I post up here is a necklace! You read it here - you can hold me to it!!
I love, love, love the combination of gemstones I've used here! Thanks Precious Sparkle Beads! I have used lots of Golden Rutile Quartz rondelles, Pyrite briolettes and Chrysoprase drop briolettes. Really simple design but I love how pretty the beads look just clustered together.
I am a big fan of Swarovski Margaritas - especially in Heliotrope, such a gorgeous set of colours in there! I think sometimes a lot of Swarovski can look a little OTT (I've definitely been guilty of this on occasion but then, sometimes only a lot of bling will do!) but I really like the combination here of crystal, turquoise rondelles and Vintaj brass chain - the materials seem to balance each other out.
So that's what I've achieved this week whilst being home, poorly on the coach with my duvet! I'm still sounding totally grotsville but feeling better in myself, just very frustrated (I've missed a whole week of my college course) with my gruff voice and rattly, wheezy chest! I hope you are escaping the lurgi and are all having a great weekend.
Hi Rebecca, how are you - so long time no talk.... I am just trying to catch up with my blog reading - and don't even know where to start... but wait I do. This picture of you and your cousins is gorgeous. Your dress is so pretty and you look just fabulous. And I love the pieces you've made. Bracelets are just easier and quicker and I can get actually over the "days of planning and designing" but I just start and do it. Congratulations on the beading competition and also the British Bead Awards - wow you rock girl.
This bracelets are beautiful!!
Hope you feel better soon. Love the new pieces, i have been etching this weekend, and trying to make loads of new pieces for next weekend as i have a few fairs coming up.
totally cute! love them
LOL !!! I have a hoard of Heliotrope and NEVER use them because I think I won't be able to get anymore.What's with that??? Although I do love Indian Sapphire ( but I know I can get them)- Crazy right?
I can totally relate - making bracelet is such fun and yours a gorgeous
Hi Rebecca - thank you for dropping by my blog :) it seems mad how everything seems to just slow down again once the planning all finishes. Hopefully now I can focus on making some new jewellery and trying out these fab ideas in Sherry's book!
I know what you mean about making bracelets, they're so much quicker and easier (I always get half way through a necklace and that's how it stays for a couple of weeks!) I still love your Dragonfly Dreams bracelet... One day I will treat myself to it :)
I hope you feel better soon, and there's nothing wrong with bracelets! Enjoy! x
PS - WOW at Bright Young Thing, that must have taken so long, it's gorgeous
Thanks ladies for all your comments! I really appreciate them all :-)
I hope you're feeling better now Rebecca! I love your Retro Romance project in this month's Beads and Beyond - red and turquoise is such a yummy combination!
