Circles Delight



Circles Delight

 
I promised to show you the, now finished, new necklace I told you about last week. It uses the same circles I used in the earrings and pendant. Different arrangement of course and a few additions.
Here is a close up of the focal section. I do have it listed on the website with a special Introductory price. 
Since the necklace is really a special order because you choose the colors of the Swarovski crystals, I decided an Introductory price would help get the ball rolling, so to speak. I have three shows scheduled in the near future plus I need to get busy working on the upcoming gift season. My need is your saving.
The necklace shown is for my grandchildren's birthstones. (You can see December is a popular month in the family) There are seven but any arrangement would look nice. You can have a larger or different shape for the parents, or just favorite colors. The choices are limited only to your imagination.

Let me know what your choice is, I'll be ready.
 Until next week,

Bev

Wear more than one bracelet at a time?

Wear more than one bracelet
at a time?

I would really like some feedback on this topic

Normally, I wear only one bracelet at a time. However, it is becoming very popular to wear stacks of bracelets, now. But they usually are thin and/or really have a "go together" look about them. 
​​​​​​​

I saw these easy to make bracelets with the look of stacked bracelets that intrigued me. Somehow in the summer this look is good. I might just make some. (Source: honestlywtf.com)

Do you like the look?​​​​​​​ Would you wear them?

 After last week's post on The French Rope I had the three bracelets sitting together on my Bead On It Board and thought: "There is a theme there. Maybe I should wear them together?" This, I'll admit, is out of my comfort zone but I did it and I liked the results. What do you think?

They look good together and I received several complements.

Apparently, I'm not the only one writing about the subject. In trying to find some pictures of stacked bracelets, I found several posts about "how to". Here is aninteresting post from Image & Me about the subject, pictures and guides. Check it out.





So, are any of these ideas that you would like to see? Should I explore more of this style?  

I really want to know. ​​​​​​​And thanks for the input last week on how you enjoy hearing  about how I do things. No one said they did not, so I'll keep on. ​​​​​​​

Until next week,

Bev

Rose Garden Collection

Rose Garden Collection
Collections seem to sort of just "grow" for me. Some are intentional and others just seem to happen.

The Rose Garden collection started with someone asking me to make a special-order gold filled medical alert bracelet. They loved the bracelet as I did but I had extra gold filled rings.

The "Flower Garden" bracelet used the extra rings. I added some Swarovski crystals (the flowers) and used my favorite Chain Maille weave, which is often called a Mobius. Three (or sometimes as many as 5) rings are woven together. You will recognize that as part of my logo and also my "Signature Pendant"

Here is my logo, see the three rings?



And here is the Signature Pendant (Also available in Gold Filled) Oh, yes, there are also earrings.

The "Flower Garden" gold filled  bracelet looks great on my wrist.

Because I had lots of copper rings on hand, it was a natural progression to make a copper version. Adding fall color Swarovski bicones, "Fall Foliage" became the  second piece in the collection. The original has been sold but I recently made one like it. (Never exactly the same!)

Another special order resulted in "Coming up Roses".  The Swarovski crystals are "Rose"pink and clear crystals. This is also sold but I certainly can make another.

Send me an email if interested.










The snow in February and March was the inspiration for the next one, "Snow and Ice".

If you want to see all of the Rose Garden Collection you can click here. (PS there is a new one called  "Blue Skies")

Plus remember you can always ask for different colors. For example, someone suggested, children's or grand children's birthstone colors.
Just let me know.

Finished Resin Bracelet

Finished Resin Bracelet
Well, almost anyhow. I'm not rally satisfied with all of the charms. I learned some things in finishing. As I added the final coats, deciding how much to add was one thing but the most important thing was to use enough light so I could see exactly where the resin was going. Sounds simple doesn't it? I do plan on tweaking some of the charms on a nice sunny day. Remembering to use good lighting while adding the resin.

I watched several videos from the lady who invented the brand I'm using.
I also did some searching looking for ideas of what to use in the charms. (The design aspect) Fun! I'm looking forward to making more.

Here is a look at the (almost) finished bracelet:

When you look closely, can you see the flaws. Mostly resin not going to the edges or not enough resin. But I really like it. I'm thinking that because there are endless possibilities
it makes a problem. Strange but true. So, any suggestions?

Here is a close up of one of the better charms. I think it would look  nice as a pendant in a larger size. What do you think?
