This brass bracelet is made with brass metal parts which is super light weight. I added two different sizes of faceted black agate beads and completed the multi strand bracelet with a silver box clasp.

Intensely blue. The blue in this blue glass cluster bracelet reminds me of the color of the sea and sky; tranquil, calming yet it brightens up the mood - energizing!
The blue charm bracelet is secured with a round toggle and measures at almost 7 inches.

I know, i know - this is out of my topic but I just cant help it. I took time off to watch Avatar by James Cameron with my son and it was totally mind-blowing. He created another world another species of being with their own language and beliefs. The movie was awesome. To quote my son " the best movie for 2009". Go and watch it. I am going to get the dvd and watch it again and maybe again.
I love the earth tone colours and this is one of my favourite pieces that I love to put on when the rest of my crystals dont "speak" to me. Ever had one of those days? I made this to complement my Autumn Bracelet and I am glad I made it as I had so many complementing on it. A big smile on my heart.....
I have always loved tourmaline. Its the color that just invites you to touch it and marvel at it. I had these chips from a reliable crystal supplier whom I have always visit when I need to find an AAA quality crystal for my personal collection. A little pricey but always beautiful pieces that I cant resist. Mmmm....

All these gemstones waiting to be worn. Cant wait to start on it. Ideas running around in my mind... now to have my time, my own time, to really have absolute time of my own to start on it.
These were made upon request from a friend who wanted a pink coloured pendant as a christmas gift. I made several designs for her to choose. She finally decided on the Valentine and I made a chain out of silvery seed beads to complete it.
I bought the Hi-Five hand charms and kept it aside for some time. Finally saw the little bare feet charms and decided to pair them to make this metal charm bracelet.

This is a variation from A Pair of Rose Necklace, a Swarovski pearl and crystal necklace too.
I used turquoise Swarovski bicones and crystal pearls matched with copper coloured seed beads for a "cooler" feel.

This has been a long long week and have not been able to do any serious beading, except in my mind of course. Recently purchased some gemstones and cant wait to really start on them. Too many ideas too little time. I believed that is what many lovers of beading would chant out. Any votes for that?
