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.

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.|
