Hopefully my pics aren't MASSIVE HUGE. Been making some bead-wrapped bangles out of a set of bracelets that were too big for my wee hands.

The first one didn't turn out as well as I'd have liked (cowrie shells and coral beads):



The others are pretty ok, I think:

Carnelian and "honey" quartz:



More coral:



One with glass beads and shell dangles:



And one with copper wire and bits of old earrings:



I'm quite fond of the last one, and the all-coral one as well, but alas-- the wire doesn't add enough bulk to make them fit me. Ah well. Hope you enjoy!

The last one is GORGEOUS! They all look great, but that last one is just to die for!

Thanks all! I know, I love the last one, too. The only downside is that chain drapes look really swell in photos, but not so swell on your wrist. I'm hoping to do more with the dark bangles/copper wire, though, because it's so yummy.

Yeah, I can see that now, but you know, it would make for an awesome choker design! Smiley
