I hopped a cruise ship to Bermuda yesterday. Before I left I wanted to make a few extra pieces of jewelry to bring with me.
While it’s a really cute bracelet, I couldn’t have it expanding in size on me so I took it apart. It turns out that it also contained some beads that went really well with a dress I purchased for my Bermuda cruise.
There were so many wonderful colors in this print to work with; aqua, cobalt, yellow, pink… I began pulling out lots of wood, lucite, shell and art beads to play with!
Then I remembered I had some memory wire and thought it would be fun (and easy) to work with that. After lots of pulling out beads, putting back beads, pulling out more beads, I had a finished bracelet!
I used art beads (bronze, ceramic & polymer), wood, brass, czech glass and shells.
I’m really happy with the finished piece. Although I do miss the original bracelet, this works so well with my sundress!
