Rainbow Bangle Bracelet
Well, glory freakin' hallelujah, it worked this time! Maybe the file size was too big for the last post? I dunno...some of the mysteries of Blogger are just beyond me apparently. Anywho, here's my "Rainbow Bangle Bracelet". It's a brick stitch tube over sterling silver frame with a sterling silver star charm. I'd like to take credit for this concept, but I can't. It came from an article in "Beadwork" magazine. I've got a lot of ideas to take it in a totally new direction, however, but wanted to make this first one as per the instructions in order to get the technique down.
The other piece I finished is a more typical furnace glass bracelet in shades of black, royal blue, purple and gold. It has Swarovski crystals, glass pearls and a few vermeil beads thrown in for good measure and I call it "Enchanted Evening":
