2... Brace Yourself

As I have been saying for the past few days... I have been working on bracelets! And would you believe, the beads were all made yesterday? Yeah. I was on a roll. I love these colors. They are a warmer version of "brights". They are dark periwinkle, turquoise, transparent ink blue, coral yellow/orange and transparent topaz. I really, really like 'em.

"Swirl On" Lightbuble bangle, "Timeless" bangle, and regular "Bang Gal!" bangle. Two old-ish favorites and one new one. I had to remake that Lightbulb bangle THREE times because I kept snipping the core wire too short. I doubt Lauren could have worn it the first two times I made it. (insert annoyed with self eye roll here)

"Soggy Boggy" bracelet. I got it into my head yesterday that the "Soggy Boggy" necklace would make a cool bracelet. And I am glad I gave it a try. It is sort of a cross between the "Soggy Boggy" design and my "Snagged" design. The beads are smaller, wrist appropriately sized, and the little beads on the clasp help keep the clasp from spinning where it shouldn't.

"Brace Yourself" bracelet. I saved my new most favorite for last. Last week when I made the "New Snagged" style necklace, the idea for this bracelet popped into my head. I am thrilled with how it turned out. It hugs your wrist in just the right way. It is full without being bulky and heavy. *sigh* I love it.

I am working on more bracelet beads this afternoon and a secret project for my booth too. Keep your fingers crossed that the booth project works! If it does, I'll share that with you tomorrow.

Your clear sense of your self, you clean eye for design and your sure ability to make both a reality are just stunning.

You know what you want to say, how things should look 'finished' and you know how to walk the steps to make the reality.

Amazing, and inspiring.

Good luck at the show this weekend! You have beautiful creations to take to the show. Lacrosse Tournament schedules on Sat & Sun will make it impossible to attend! :(
