I saw this Silpada bracelet at a vendor show and fell in love with it!



But, with a price tag in the $60 range, it just was not gonna happen.  Embarrassed

So I made a trip to my local bead shop for some sterling beads and a sterling toggle and raided my stash for the rest.  Oh, I bought the black and white glass beads too.  It really doesn't resemble the Silpada, but I think I like it better!!  Grin

I'd rather have a 1-of-a-kind than a mass-produced overpriced piece any day! Good job. Don't be sorry!

Actually, I think it looks more similar than you think Smiley  Your's is MUCH better though.  OOAK, more beads, looks more well made than the other.  Great job!

I think you did an amazing job! I'm always using my cell camera for "Well, I'm not paying that much, but I bet I can make it!" times!

Great job! (and way to save some serious cash!!!)
