I added some Czech glass flowers in sunny yellow, some Swaro crystals in shades of blue and green to match the lampwork and lots of bright sterling silver.
I also added some pod-like Bali silver beads to kind of go with the garden theme.
A closeup on the beads - because who doesn't like to see lampwork REALLY CLOSE UP? Just don't get drool on the screen.
I got these 7" sterling silver bracelet chains several years ago from Rio Grande. I just keep a pile of 'em around and when I need a pretty quick fix, I just grab on and embellish the heck out of it with dangles. It makes for a simple design, but honestly, I've had more compliments on this style of bracelet than anything else I've ever done. I have one I wear to work all the time that has cane glass dangles and crystals in shades of orange, yellow and lime and people try to buy it right off my wrist all the time.
The only thing I've never been 100% crazy about is the clasp that comes with them. It's a pretty small and difficult to manipulate lobster clasp. So I usually change it out. For this bracelet, I used a larger, more rounded lobster with a more prominent latch and I added a larger jump ring for it to attach to. Then I save the smaller lobster claws for very delicate necklaces.
One last look - I love the bright yellow of these beads and the flowers on them are so cute.
