I used a mokume gane cane for focal beads and the smaller beads.  I used a letter head stamp and black ink for the word HOPE.


I found these at Hancock fabrics...

I used small silver spacers on top of polyclay...

Very nice, and those little spacer bead frame thingies are killer!  (what were they actually called on the package?)

Love the bracelets as well... will you be selling them or just wearing/giving?  Nice "fauxs" too.
I'd love to see some of them with gray lettering too, or perhaps a darker red/orange than the stones or just thinner lettering lines . . .or even silver (or glittery silver) backfill or antiquing.  Whole bunch of possibilities with that idea!

Thanks  Nymeria and Diane!

Diane-The package says silver plated ring and flower beads frame metal.  Pretty much what you called them lol. 
I kept one bracelet for myself and gave away the others.  They were a request from Kaleesi for MS friends of hers.  Not shown in pic but she found silver awareness charms I placed near clasps.  She wanted orange (MS awareness color) with streaks of silver (like silver lining of hope concept) and this is what I came up with.  I will never tire of Mokume gane!!

These looked even better in person beadizzygrl and I can never thank you enough!
My favorite is the one on the right - which is made entirely of beads that you made Smiley
Two out of the three people I gave them to cried. One of them is a friend I work with whose mother died of MS and her sister has just been diagnosed with it. She said she would never take it off!
You did a fantastic job designing them Gina and I think it really meant more to the people that I gave them to to know that you also have it.
I LOVE THEM ALL!

Absolutely gorgeous choice of colors and ingenious way of using the spacers and silver. I love the beads for each bracelet too <3
