These were a lot of fun to make. They were fairly simple to stitch up, using herringbone or Ndebele stitch. I guess I went a little crazy, making so many different color ways.
The green and amber colored ones are larger, size 6º beads, while the pink and pippin-apple green bracelets are size 8º beads. The one on the right is still waiting to have it’s clasp attached. I couldn’t find an antique copper slide clasp anywhere. Only bright copper, which did not look good at all.
Not sure what, if anything, I’ll do with these bracelets. While I am not a pink person (my closet is declared a pink-free zone), I find I really like the pink & black one. It fits me, and feels very slinky on – sinuous, if you will. The apple green is definitely mine. I fell in love with those beads the moment I saw them. They were also a gift from my friend Jessica, while we were down in Tucson.
