okay, this is what i came up with.  I used 20 guage wire because I couldnt find 18, do you think that makes a difference?  It didn't come out perfect, but once i get better i'm going to try to sell some.

- i curled in the ends so it's not sticking out like in the picture

Yep, 18 is stronger. . .was thinking that with the smaller beads like you and I seem to be using that beading both ways might look better that skiping every other. . . will post picture when partner gets her package  Cheesy

Edited cause like a dope I forgot to take out the pictures. . .

Wow, these are all so beautiful!

black_buffalo, I especially like your variation.  The flat beads look really great, like a tiled wall...  Hee, it makes me think of the shower!  I love it.

Wow, this is great. Nice tutorial. I didn't have enough wire or beads for a whole bracelet, so I made some earrings with the same concept.



They're pretty, but they're too chunky for me, and they're not my color. I'll probably give them as a gift to someone they'd look good on. In retrospect, I think they would look better without the curly-q's on the bottom. Oh well, maybe I'll try some more when I get more beads and wire.

Wow I love your take on the idea Modus Operandi - really beautiful, although I maybe slightly biased  Roll Eyes   purple is my favourite colour, and that wire is simply gorgeous  Grin

I also really like the way you have tapered it and made the ends of the bracelet such a feature.

I loved this cuff anyway but the new slant you have added has increased it's allure even more  Shocked

i bought the frames a month ago and still hadn't thought of what to put on it, here in my country they usually use shiny glassbeads, and i don't wanna use that bcoz it seems so mainstream already... but tnx to ur post it inspired me of what to use...

She doesn't have any swirls at the ends, so I'm wondering how to hide the ends so neatly ^_^ but thanks!

She used a manufactured bracelet blank.  She only had to wire on the beads, didn''t have to make the frame.

That is a lovely bracelet modus operandi!!

I, too, am a big purple fan; love the detail--the wire work is as lovely as the beading--shoot, I would wear it with eaither side out!!  Nice job!

miss american pie -- the earrings are also a great idea--are they heavy?  I think I would add a little more "weight"/wire toward the top but I love the curls at the bottom!!
