Daydreamer Bracelet

Okay, so this didn't photograph so well...I'm blaming the bracelet, not my photography is Jill Wiseman's Daydreamer...I used miniduos and 15/0s and made it a bangle.  It's very comfortable and rolls right on my wrist...I can't believe I actually made it to fit right!  I always stink at doing that.  I don't know if you can tell by the picture, but it's a mixture of bronzes.  I'm working on a double strand tennis bracelet right the rate I bead, I should be finished in about ten years...:)

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas.

All That Jazz

This is a bracelet that my friend, Terri, showed me how to's basically a glorified right angle weave tennis bracelet with 15/0s in the ditches...easy to make...I reinforced it A LOT because I used gold KO thread before I EVEN thought about the sharp edges on the metal beads...should've used Fireline but I didn't want thread to show...even though I had to reinforce a lot, I'm really glad that I used the gold thread.  The bracelet has a nice feel.  I used 2.5mm gold-filled rounds for the base and embellished with 15/0 gold Miyuki's and 3mm gold-filled bicones...used the the same 15/0 gold Miyuki's in the ditches...used a magnetic button clasp.  Email me at with any comments or questions!  :)

Pinnacle Bands

This is another pattern by Deborah Roberti...I'm REALLY liking her patterns.  This was fun to make and is very comfortable to wear.
