Spring Fling bracelet - Art Beads Blog Partner

This is one idea that came to my mind and I immediately set down to work.
At first I wanted to group all the pink drops on the center brass link, but the wire wasn't long enuff, and I didn't feel they would be secure. I haven't quite figured out how to work with the pink drops, they remind me of something that would be used in a floral design.

I purposely turned the brass ovals opposite of each other so you can see both sides of the link, and not have to worry if the bracelet is put on upside down or turns on your wrist and shows the underside of the link. I didn't have any brass wire, so I used the brass as part of the focal and used the copper wire to bring it all together. I love mix and match :)

It is fun with a nice drape and the dangles make me happy.

These items I got from Art Beads -

Soon I am going to learn how to work my camera and have the whole picture in focus - but that is another day and another cup of coffee.

  1. Can I call a bracelet lighthearted? I got a smile on my face just looking at your photo of it, Tish. Good mix of springy/Easter colors, where the warmth of copper & pink make a little bit of sunshine :)
