Link Updates and New Bracelet

I just added a couple of new links here: CLuny Grey Jewelry and the Jewelry Trends Blog. Be sure to check them out...lots of beautiful jewelry and photos!

Speaking of which, here's a pic of my latest creation:

This is another brick stitched bangle bracelet over 14 gauge sterling silver wire with some Bali silver accents and a star charm. I made my own simple pattern for the zig-zagging line design and used some new palladium-finish delicas for the silver beads. By the way, the palladium finish is FANTASTIC. No more of the finish degeneration problems that existed with the galvanized-finish beads. I LOVE these beads now. Of course, they ARE more expensive, but this is one instance where it's definitely worth it.

In other news, it looks like I've got a chance at a couple of shows coming up in the next few months so stay tuned for more information on that.

Well, except that it's brick stitch and not peyote LOL! But nice try. I'll have to teach you both of them some time.
