It all begins with a bad news, the end of 2 bracelets which broke during the week. One had blue stones and those shiny transparent crystals and the other had yet shiny colourful crystals and glittering black ones. The first one had those magnet closure thingy, and i was putting them away, i noticed those curved twisted metal pieces i knew would be great for a bracelet so i fished around for fishing line and started my bracelets!

(oops, too much lighting)


The first i made, with the magnet closure and transparent crystals+ curved twisted metal thingy

Then i wanted something more intricate, and a twisted bracelets would go well with the curved metal pieces.

This one is made with the colourful crystals and a normal clasp + the curved metal thingy
There was not enough of the metals for 4 bracelets, so for the blue and black ones, i had to search for some patterns online that suited my fancy. Then i remembered those bracelets i found which was SO expensive, think it was like Rs300 (MUR) which would be approx. 10USD. I merged patterns (like the points from a beaded star found on craftbits for the border) and created those awesome bracelets!

The first one, showing the front and the back of the bracelet (since i had no more clasps left (only 2 bracelets broke) I made a round ball with the beads themselves, and inserted a white pearly bead inside. (This one came out too long and the bead ball was smaller than the bead ring, which lead to it being loose when closed)

So i made a second one, shorter,with a smaller bead ring. This one has a black bead inside the bead ball.


Action shot!


I had taken some in-progress shots, but since i got MANY unsuccessful tries, in the end, i didn't know which ones were for the successfully finished bracelet.  Tongue
These 4 bracelets demanded much time, tries and hair-pulling shouts of frustration. I'm glad i did not give up.

Sorry for the bad photos. My camera would not coorperate.
These are my fist bracelets, so please be considerate with me, lol

I love the ones in the first picture, the white ones are too simple for me, but they look nice Cheesy my favourite has to be the turquoise one and the dark metal twisted one

As my first bracelets, i did not want to start with something too complicated, hence the simple white one.
But then, i wanted something more intricate, hence the others

I love them.. the blue one is beautiful, I like the natural look of the little stones  Smiley I think it looks great when bracelets are wide. And by the way, it looks great on your hand! Grin

Thanks everyone for such nice comments.

I also like the blue and black ones, i'm totally crazy over bracelets and rings like the one i'm wearing in the photo. Cuffs are my favorite, that's why i tried making the 2 last one a bit cuff-like
