I'm sure the technique I used actaully has a name... But I like the beaded lace term better Wink I originAlly found the pattern in a Japanese beading book, but since I 1.) didn't have any of the right materials, and 2.) can't read Japanese, I sorta winged it all... But I think it came out quite fab...

Too bad I don't wear blue though  Huh What was I thinking, lol~


A not-so-stellar pic of the whole bracelet...


Super-macro shot <3 I just love love love this bracelet...


At the end of the extentor (sp?) chain, I added a matching drop bead and somehow managed to get those seed beads onto a jump ring... I broke a lot of beads, needless to say...


Action shot!


Action shot two!

I acn't even begin to describe how proud I am of this bracelet... I've never done such complex beading before  Shocked I had to restart at least three times since I didn't know what sort of thread to use... I'm sure I started with tiger tail, but that didn't work (too thick), then went to monofiliment (kept warping) (is that even the right term?)... I ended up using (i think) nylon upholstry threads  Lips sealed Worked out well though! Gives the right shape~

THE END Cheesy

What a lovely bracelet  Smiley
I love the little blue drops and the detail on the end of the chain.

I too make a lot of blue jewelry even though I actually dont were blue colors that much. But I`m starting to, because there`s so many wonderful blue beads around so I cant help but buying them  Roll Eyes
