Yay for me, my hubby bought me all kinds of beads and charms for Christmas, so I have been making all sorts of bracelets.  These are made from memory wire, glass beads, acrylic beads, metal beads, charms, glass chips and anything i could put a head pin through.

Rainbow Bright


Cloudy Skies in blue and grey


Autumnal delight with yellow and orange


Classy Lassy in black, red and silver


Fairy Princess in pink and purple


Sea Foam in blue and green


Thanks for looking.  Smiley

My fav is the one with the turtle.
You have quite the eye when it comes to these, it looks like you spent hours finding just the right colors and shapes of bead to put on the wire!

Hi, first thanks for all your comments, and secondly about getting the beads to stop, I did use tube spacers, they are maybe an inch long with a slight curve to them.  They are quite cheap, which is great, coz beads aren't, so I am able to fill a bracelet without spending a small fortune. Cheesy

Did you have any luck with the tube beads.  I buy mine in New Zealand, so I'm probably no help with a supplier.  I did stumble across this on etsy tho...is it ok to post this, it's not self promotion?
