Bev's Bracelet & Silvered Frit Beads

Oh my, I am trying to catch up from beads and jewelry I made over two weeks ago.  Instead of one long post, like I usually do, I am going to break it up into at least two posts - maybe three.

This is Bev's bracelet.  Bev is one of my customers from the very beginning!!!!  She liked the Giraffe/Cobble Stone style of bead and bought a pendent bead a while back.  She showed me the outfit she was going to wear with it and I got the idea for this style of bracelet.  She originally wanted a viking weave bracelet but I could not find a color of wire to make the viking weave out of that I liked with these beads.  So I made up this bracelet to show her and just see what she thought about this style/concept.  She liked it and fortunately it happened to fit her wrist so she bought it!   I really enjoyed making this bracelet too.  I really do love working with wire.  I'd rather create with wire than string beads together and then worry about those pesky little crimp beads holding well - that always stresses me out!  Sorry I got off track here a bit.  Here is the bracelet.

The best bead from this next batch was sold before I took a photo.  Which is a good thing but it was a way cool bead and I wish I had a photo to share.  This one is similar in color but the shape is very different.  It's a base of Cobalt with some Triton and Aurae Frit.

Works great on my Change A Bead Necklace
This bead is similar in shape to the one that I sold but has a base of Aqua.

This necklace was not my design.  My BFF from way back in kindergarten styled it to go with the dress she will be wearing at her daughters wedding.  I made a variety of beads for her to choose from for her center focal bead and this is what she designed.
These are some of the other beads I made for her to choose from that she didn't select.  Some of these beads work with the Bergard pendent system.
These are prettier in person - I promise.  They look kind of muddy here.
This is the one I thought she would pick because it matches the color of the bridesmaids earrings which I also made.
This one I just could not get a good photo of.
This seems like a good breaking point with my notes and photos but I have more to blog about so check back soon!  Thanks for stopping by to read my blog!
