Choosy Chicks Choose Chicklets Blog Hop

I had so much fun with this project. To have one special bead to work with and go from there.  I knew almost from the start what I wanted to make with it.  A simple boho style bracelet.
 I added some of my lampwork accent beads and strung it on several cords of waxed linen.  I can hardly wait to see what everyone else did with their beads.  Below you will see a list of the artists participating and links to their blogs.  Have fun hopping I am sure I will.

Love the different shades of blue, and how each side is different but compliments the other, the fringe adds another great element to this design!
