Row of Roses

 I made this bracelet from a pattern in the Bead & Button Magazine, August 2013.
The designer is Mabeline Gidez.
Her patterns are so pretty. I also have her book.
This is one of my favorite bracelets, the colors in the pictures aren't as good as the actual bracelet.

I Love Clay 2013 Blog Hop

I received 2 pieces of clay from our host, Lisa Lodge and this is her website:
Thank you for letting me participate on this blog hop.
Both my pieces are from Blu Mudd, and I have a picture of both pieces in one of my previous posts.
I am so excited, I didn't buy anything for either one of my pieces, I used everything from my bead collection.
The above piece I used 6mm round crystals in two different colors, and I made links with wire.
Too bad is so cloudy and cold outside, so my pictures didn't turned out as nice. Brrr.

My second piece is a bracelet bar, I had a hard time with one. I could not make anything I liked, until last night.
I use gemstone beads( I don't know what they are, those are one of the first beads I both when I started beading about 5 years ago) and freshwater pearls.
I thought it would be easier to make something when you have the pieces. But I found it quite challenging, I really had a lot of fun.
Thank again Lisa for letting me participate at the last minute.
