Bracelet finished in time for WOYWW

and a tiny ** GIVEAWAY ** ... don't get excited it is only tiny, but I have a couple of spare green lampworked beads by moi and I will make a zip dangle to give to somebody who leaves a comment (I will run the number of comments through random org to choose the winner).  For something similar see the post from yesterday showing the one I made myself.

Soooo .... I am sure you are sick of me going on about my glass lampworking, but there is the result made up into a bracelet - I'm pretty pleased with it ......

Possibly just a dab too long, so I will just un-do one end and remove a bead and spacer (or if I can't get the crimp off without damaging the wire will just re-string in the same order, but less the two beads)  ... other than that ... SWEET - I need to develop my photography skills though as it looks far more sparkly and impressive in real life!!

In the end I used four of the six Heathcliffe Frit over Ivory beads, along with some pale pink crystals, smaller darker pink crystals, green'ish-purple medium crystals, silver wheel spacer beads, silver beadcaps (around the lampwork beads) and a silver/crystal dragon fly toggle in silver.

I have spared you an actual picture of my desk as all it contains is my pink dress spread-eagled over it with the bracelet on top!!!

If you arrived here by accident why not grab a coffee and head off over to Fair Queen Julia's to see what all the other crafty girls and boys have been up to this WOYWW.

Well, if I had made those beads myself I would be shouting it from the rooftops. They are utterly gorgeous. Shame you have to redo the bracelet but I am sure you will use the beads in something else and it needs to fit afterall.
Thanks for the chance to win and thanks for sharing. Hugs, Neet #20 xx said...

That bracelet is absolutely amazing! It looks very similar to those very expensive Pandora ones. So so talented! Well done!

I'm not tired of hearing about your beads yet. I even thought about them the other day. Your bracelet is gorgeous. You are brave to take it apart to liberate it of a few of the beads.
