Czech Blue Bead Bird Charm Bracelet, Blue and Brown Link Bracelet, Fly Robin Fly

I made this Czech blue bead bird charm bracelet for my young niece who is a lover of all blue.  

I added some brown Swarovski Elements crystal to this link bracelet  for color. Blue and brown is one of my favorite color scheme as they go so well together.  I added an adorable bird charm to capture the whimsical look...

I love the pairing of warm dark color with a cool light color, just like black and white does with each other - a match made in heaven! 

Fly Robin Fly.....
travel far and wide.....
see the wonder of the world and 
savor each moment as it passes,
embrace all that life has to offer,
celebrate everyday with joy!

Fluorite Bracelet, Flower Bracelet, Celebration

This fluorite bracelet was made to celebrate every moment of the good times, the laughter.....
those special moments in our life...

I dont often use such light pastel colors, but every so often, 
all the colors are a match in heaven and 
all the beads just fall in place.
I am pretty pleased with how this flower bracelet turned out.

Flowers always makes me happy and reminds me of fresh, new and growth and are almost always flowers are present during a celebration. So I added the flower and leaf to the wire wrapped green and purple fluorite which framed the antiqued silver plated pewter oval link. Amethyst and chrysoprase Swarovski Elements crystals dangles prettily in between the fluorites. I finished the celebration bracelet with a decorative round toggle clasp and added a fairly sized maple leaf charm to complete the nature inspired bracelet.

Remember this song? Celebration by Kool & the Gang

"Celebrate good times, come on!
Let's celebrate

There's a party goin' on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate and party with you

Come on now, celebration
Let's all celebrate and have a good time

Wire Wrapped Bracelet, Amethyst Bracelet

 I made this wire wrapped bracelet for my eldest sister who is coming home for a month's vacation.  Cant wait to see her....

These amethyst gemstones have been in my stash for awhile and decided I would make a pretty amethyst bracelet for a welcome home gift.  She loves wire wrapped bracelet and so I decided to have a go at it.  As it is, I am still trying to master wire-wrapping  so I went looking through some tutorial and found this "simple" (I thought it was) wire wrapping style.    And oh boy!!!!!the amount of wire discarded could break the bank ....

After many attempts.....

I know....I need more practice.  

I hope she likes it though......

Blue Glass Bead Bracelet, Purple Crystal Pave

A beautiful blue glass bead bracelet with a purple crystal pave bead, especially made for someone dear.

My mum gave me these amazing blue glass beads while clearing out the drawer and said to me - "here, take these and go  make something pretty".  And, with my niece birthday coming, I thought these would make a pretty nice gift and she loves anything with blue....

With this bead in and the other bead out from my bead collection, I finally decided that this color scheme of purple, blue and green would make a pretty bracelet for my young and beautiful niece. What do you think of the result?

A purple crystal pave for a little bit of sparkle and purple amethyst, peridot and dark gold seed beads to a add a little bit of color to the blue glass beads.  I added a little brass rose charm before securing it with a decorative heart toggle.

Sadly, I had some issue taking pictures of this little blue beauty.  This was the best picture among so many I took. Sigh...... I really need to get some lessons in photography.... This picture really does not do justice to the real thing...
