These are some more bracelets for my "found art"-style project, which is detailed on my tiny, baby blog Wink

Have we got some internal sequin issues, Benjamin?

Those are fabulous!  I'd never heard of found art before.  But I went to your blog and then the website for it.  That's a cool concept!  Smiley

I'm just getting into beading and I like the simplicity of your bracelets.  They looks wonderful and I can see myself making them without too much trouble!

Thanks a lot, you guys!  Yes, I keep them pretty simple, since I'm making and "losing" about 30-35 of these each week.  If I'm making something for family or for myself, I tend to do the more intricate designs then, but the ones you see here make up so fast it keeps it really fun and easy. 

I like the green one and the purple/pink one the best, too!  The "swirly" thing seems to be pretty popular, and it looks cute with a minimum of effort Smiley

very sweet and simple! Love the one that is never really featured but is sneaking into several - looks like soft round wheels and small beads?

what are the beads that are in the second to last pic? the shiny white rounds?

I got some that look like that from someone on eBay trying to pass them off as "fire opal" just to get a better look at them because I couldn't believe the price. They aren't fire opal, by the way - best I can figure about half of what I got are treated glass and the other half are angel aura treated quartz. Sorting them out has given me a headache.

at least they didn't cost me much! which is how I knew they weren't going to be actual fire opal...

The soft round ones are just treated glass - I kinda try to keep my costs low.  I really love those, too.  The other beads on that bracelet are Austrian crystal (not so cost-effective, but beautiful!) and some sterling silver tubes.

Thanks for commenting!
