A pretty beaded lanyard is nicer than one made of shoestring, don't you think?

Mine didn't turn out as good as yours, but I still like it. I had some problems because I used cheap beads. They were different sizes, so I had to dig through them to find the right size. But here is my attempt at it...

Holy gorgeous, that's a lovely bracelet!  I vote YES for the red crystals, and I think an intense green would look good, too.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

Very nice - but is that a foxtail chain?

I like the contrast of the black with the metal.

Just added links in the original post to Maille Artisan's site, for how to do the inverted round, and the captive inverted round for those interested.

Thanks for your comments.

I wore it all last night and it was comfortable that I had to check several times that it did not slide off.  I wore it to work, and it was sturdy enough that it has not slipped off or broken off my wrist (my work is pretty physical at times).

Totally awesome!!  My sis was visiting and peeked when I was looking at this and was really impressed (so was I).  I think I'm gonna have to try to make this for her.  Smiley 

BTW what size rings did you use and what size were the crystals?  Thanks!!
