Kenya Bracelet Project

Kenya Bracelet

I used eight 19mm round acrylic bronze and white beads, and strung them on white leather, knotting the leather in between the beads.  I used a bronze TierraCast toggle clasp.  I hardly ever name my pieces, but when this bracelet was completed the name came to mind immediately. Length: Approximately 7-1/4″.

Midnight Rendezvous Bracelet Project

Midnight Rendezvous Bracelet

All I wanted with these beads was for the shape and color to take front and center. The puffy triangle shape of the onyx made a beautiful statement. To highlight it’s beauty I used sterling silver beads and two square filigree bead caps. Since this is a fairly weighty piece, I added additional reinforcements by […]

Kon Tiki Double-Stranded Bracelet Project

Kon Tiki Double-Stranded Bracelet

I love texture in the pieces I make – I wanted to use these wonderfully shaped freshwater pearls and I felt the shells complemented the color and texture of the pearls perfectly. I used a large leaf-shaped bronze colored toggle clasp, which fits the design of the piece. A summery, beachy, boho bracelet – overall, I […]

Bedrock Bracelet Project

Bedrock Bracelet

Having bought a bundle of wonderful bright and somewhat crazy colored lamp work nuggets from blueseraphim (on Etsy), I decided that red coral chips and a bali silver toggle with red tigertail might be a great balance to show off the unusual shapes – I am very happy with the simplicity of the bracelet and […]

Scrunched Curb Chain Bracelet Project

Scrunched Curb Chain Bracelet

This bracelet is made with three medium size Moss Agate stones with curb chain threaded on stretch magic elastic to give this link effect. This bracelet is stunning and goes with so many outfits! I love the look of these bracelets and make them using many different beads and other materials.

I Have Got The Blues Bracelet Project

I Have Got The Blues Bracelet

Blue and green stones helped me create the name of this piece. I strung each bead section onto brass wire and did a simple loop to close each end. Each beaded wire section was attached to brass jump-rings. The focal is the brass filigree ring that I attached to the bracelet by wrapping both sides […]

Ocean Waves Bracelet Project

Ocean Waves Bracelet

I am often inspired by my surroundings and living in South Florida definitely had an effect on this one. The handmade lampwork focal was made by me in my home studio in Pompano Beach, FL of Italian soft glass. The bracelet is accented by shell chips and sterling silver.

Turquoise And Brown Bracelet Project

Turquoise And Brown Bracelet

I made this for my sis who loves the combination of turquoise and brown. This is my first beading project and she loved it. I used strechy cord and a collection of assorted beads from Darice for this. I secured the cord with two knots and an overhand knot. I used Hypo cement to secure […]

Copper Green Banded Bracelet Project

Copper Green Banded Bracelet

This bracelet features my own handmade lampwork beads, sterling silver, and fluted Czech glass beads. I made the beads by creating a round ivory colored base, added a copper green stripe, then a black stripe. The beads were annealed in a kiln and then cleaned. Finally I soaked the beads in an acid etching solution […]
