In yesterday's post I showed a necklace that I made following a suggestion from Auntie's Beads. I mentioned that I while I might use directions from somewhere, the results are hardly ever the same as the example. This necklace was, however, the same. I was trying to learn something new. Later, I'll come up with something different from the same example.
The inspiration for this bracelet looks entirely different from the finished product. Back to my usual format. The only thing in this bracelet that looks like the inspiration is the silver curved tubes.
I tried to make it like the suggestion but it did not work out, just didn't look or fit together right. So, with a little maneuvering and adding some different beads, this is the results. Not bad!
Here is another view of the same bracelet:
The black beads are hematite, one of my favorite items to use in designs. Let me know what you think.
I just have to add: The Citgo sign caught on fire and, finally, so did the Red Sox last night. I have to admit we went to bed thinking it was all over but they pulled it off. If the Sox have to lose to anyone I'd like to see Tampa win, however. They are a great inspiring team. Last place last year and first in their division this year. A great turn around! Even Manny couldn't keep the Dodgers in the race. OK, now you all know my opinions on baseball!
