A gift

After my friend Marilee bought the Orchid Rose bracelet, I decided I should make her a crystal bracelet to match. I had these new purple iris seed beads that I'd purchased at the gem show -- they look kind of blue in this photo, but they're actually a very dark purple. They're a great compliment to the Cyclamen Opal crystals, which are the same color as the ones I used as an accent in Orchid Rose. I topped it off with a hexagon-shaped pewter button.

In the meantime, I discovered a secret stash of crystal bracelets that has never been listed on my Etsy shop, so I should be photographing those on Monday.


  1. Yes, the bracelet came yesterday and I wore it and the earrings until I went to bed. They're not only great by themselves, but they go perfectly with a new lightweight sweater I bought!

  2. Excellent! I'm so glad you like it :)

  3. I write for the Artbeads Blog for Beaders and just wanted to tell you that I love this! It's got such cool details but with a simple style. Amazing job.
