These were done some time ago - when I was on my wild tutorial binge. I love the results though and have been wearing them a lot. I have to make some more because I think other people will like them too.
These were from Ann Rickett's Tutorial, She gives you a good starting point - and one of the bracelet beads is an exact copy, but then, using the techniques, I branched off and created my own.
First the bracelet:
I strung it with leather spacers and ivory colored beads. The counter-weight bead is a topaz tiger bead.
More recently, I sat down and made this focal. I wired it up and wear it on a ball chain.
I think the bottom part of this bead reminds me of Monarch butterfly wings, so there's another direction to take it!
