I recently organized a strawberry themed swap, and knew I wanted to find a way to use some of the beautiful lampwork glass strawberry beads in my stash.  As I searched the web for inspiration pictures of strawberries, I decided I'd like to add some blossoms too, so I found some lucite flowers and bright green lucite leaves.



The bracelet chain is sterling, and the findings are sterling-filled.  The beads are a mix of handmade lampwork berries, Czech glass, and Swarovski crystal.  The whole piece was a joy to make.   Smiley

Oooo! I think this is something a grownup, sophisticated Strawberry Shortcake wears as a little hint to her true identity when working in the city as a crack reporter.

This is so cute Smiley From the thumbnail, I thought it was a Mario bracelet with little piranha plants!
The beads work so well together. I tried my hand at jewellery making a few times and... well.. I take my hat off to you.
