I started doing bracelets some years ago ..... but i never posted them ... so here you go - i hope you will like them  Wink

This is one of my first

And this follows quite closely  Cheesy

After a while i got tired of these two and i invented a new patters - well maybe not but i never saw this type of bracelet in any of the bead books or magazines i've looked

Meanwhile i up my obsession with beads learning to do my own glass beads on a little torch head. This is only one example - in the necklace and a bracelet to match the colors  Wink

I've started to play more with wire so here are some results:

These last two I've made last weekend. Currently the dragonfly bracelet is my fav  Cheesy

Sorry for the image intense post but i wasn't sure if it is better to have one huge post or lots of small ones .... oh well.

Let me know what do you think  Kiss

Oh!  I like them all...but I would totally wear the victorian-looking third one. (Black and dark blue)  I wish I had a necklace and earrings to go with it!  So great!

And your lampwork beads...too rad!  I will do that one day...I have already promised myself!!!

Love them all,
Micol

Great stuff! You've got great textures going on.

I love your handmade beads.  I've always wanted to try it.  Is it hard to learn?

If you are not afraid of fire and noise - no, not really. What you need most is left and right hand dexterity (I am right handed) and lots of practice. I still have my very first beads i ever made ... maybe one day i will post those just for fun  Wink

Wow!
 your bracelets are awesome! I would love/be proud to wear one on my wrist! I'm so jealous of your skill, i've always wanted to be able to make bracelets. I even bought TONS of beads from the firemountain beads website, and my boyfriend bought me a couple books on the topic, but I was never able to produce anything anybody'd want to wear Wink Awesome beading skills!

Thanks! maybe the trick for you would be to go to one or two beading classes offered in the specialty bead stores .... it will teach you some basics and give you some ideas ..... it is always better to see somebody doing it - sometimes it is hard to just follow diagrams in an article - it happens to me all the time  Wink The first bracelet i show here it is actually "smart" basic stringing any beginner can learn in a couple of hours ....

I love the fifth bracelet down!  I like the combination of wire, beads, and little pendants(the purpley round ones).  I think you have inspired me :-)
