Square Swarovski Bracelet

I didn't really use a pattern for this. I used crystal tabac squares and looped them with peyote strips. I used DB-31 Delicas for the peyote strips. I beaded the strips over the edges of the squares like a bail. There are other ways to do that, but I didn't want the crystals to be able to touch each other in the loops. I used a Swarovski button for the clasp.

White Flat Spiral Bracelet

This is the same pattern as the Black Magic Bracelet that I posted earlier in the blog. I just didn't want to call it a "White Black Magic Bracelet"

Swarovski and Bali Silver Bracelet

This bracelet is a no-brainer. It's strung on Softflex with Swarovski's, Bali silver spacers, and Swarovski rondelles. It's very easy to make and goes with a lot of outfits!

Netted Bracelet

I made this bracelet with gold size 11 charlottes. I LOVE LOVE LOVE charlottes! The bracelet is from a premier issue of a magazine that never published another issue...and it was a REALLY good magazine. It was called Bead World.

Peyote Bugle Bracelet

There really isn't a pattern for this. A friend made one from size 1 bugles, and I copied it! I seem to be making a habit of that, huh? Anyhow, it's simple peyote with a picot edge and a Swarovski button for the clasp. This is another one of those bracelets that is VERY comfortable and feels slinky. I'm working on another one right now in a gold iris mix. I hardly EVER make two of anything.

Bronze Garden Bracelet

This is a version of a bracelet that my friend, Shirley, makes. There really is no pattern. I was just a copycat! :)

Crystal Burst Ring

This is from Laura McCabe's pattern. Miyuki makes a Crystal AB Delica. Yay! It's DB-51 and I used it in this ring since I used a crystal rivoli.

Evening Iridescence

This bracelet is from a Lisa Kan pattern that was in the December 2008/January 2009 issue of Beadwork. This bracelet is very comfortable and, thankfully, the colors that I chose go with a lot of different outfits. Usually I'm not very good at picking colors on my own. :(
