ArtBeads ‘What’s Old is New Again!’ Blogger Challenge

Hey I forgot to show you the other pieces I made with the new beads from and my mom's old necklace!

I am slippin' here :)

If you remember back to this post you can see how I got started. (I do so love those earrings!)

Well I didn't stop there!

Not only did I add the bead from my mom's necklace, but I added a few links from an old chain necklace as well and created this bracelet. I added the cute daisy earring drop as an accent. This one is so bright, and so flirty!

Here I did a double strand. I made hammered copper spirals to use as the links to attach the strands to. One of hand wound links on copper, used cone end caps, from to accent one of the lamp work beads, it really set it off, and then strung the blue glass with the crystals and seed bead accents. This is a fun mismatch aye-sim-met-rickle design on copper chain.

If you like these beads, and have an idea rolling around - here are the beads I used.

BS-0038 6x8mm Dark Amber and Opaque Sky Blue with Picasso Roundel Bead Strand *

LMP-0146 Yellow and Orange Roundel Beads (7 pcs) *

It is time to bust out the summer clothes and bring some of that old fashion forward!
