A few more bracelets from my recent jewelry-obsessed phase with info from my deviantART:



I was commissioned to create a Christmas present for a friend's daughter who likes Twilight. Rather than just making the sweatshirt alone, I decided to put together a Twilight package for her.

This bracelet is made using crystal beads (Swarovskis I think) in dark red/brown and light pink/tan. I wanted to create a bracelet that spanned the ever-changing color of Edward's eyes depending upon when he had hunted last. The colors in the picture are a little affected by the flash, the lighter beads can be almost clear in the light and both have a more red tint.



Yet another Twilight wolf bracelet, if you can't tell these are some of my favorite things to create. This particular bracelet features the same beads as Edward's Eyes, but this time is Seth-themed. Since Edward and Seth are such good friends in the book, I figured they wouldn't mind sharing beads. Smiley

Seth is my favorite werewolf second perhaps to Jacob, though the two are a close tie if anything. He may be young, but he is so positive and happy that it always makes me smile. I used a small bronze wolf charm to accent the beads, but only had silver findings. These shots show how much these beads change color depending on where they are and how they're placed. For this shot I feel the colors really worked, with the lighter beads fading to a light brown and even pink in some places. Werewolves are warm on the outside, and I think Seth probably has a very warm heart as well! Smiley



Finally, a bracelet for my coworker using green glass beads, small green crystal beads, and silver dragonfly beads.

Thoughts?

I love the colour of those beads. really pretty.

This is funny, I've been thinking about making jewelry based on Bella's descriptions of Edward's "topaz" eyes.  I was in Hobby Lobby the other day trying to pry myself away from the beads... at least until after Christmas, but this just made it SO much harder!  Nice work!

Thank you!  I had thought about that and I may do it in the future.  For this one I had limited time and materials, but I'm sure there will be more Edward jewelry on the way. Smiley

Thank you! Hehe, I know what you mean.  I went to a craft supply store the other day looking for supplies for Christmas presents and came out with materials to make myself some jewelry!  We'll just pretend I'm practicing for presents, yeah that's it...

Not to be too creepy/stalkerish, but I just noticed via your profile that you're in NH!  I'm from NH originally, and have moved around a lot the last 5 years.  I was in NH for the past year, but moved down to KY in August for my job... I miss home.   

I'm from all over NH, but mostly Manchvegas, though I've lived in Conway, Bedford, Concord and Franklin too.  Where are you from?

That's cool, I'm actually from New Boston.  Think hicks, and sheep. Tongue But I love my town so it's okay.  I do spend a lot of time in Manchester though.
