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.

Very pretty ♥bracelet♥. It does not look so simple to me (-: Beautiful blue colours, so elegant with the silver rings and clasp. Must be great to wear with denim...

Cory Tompkins said...

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!
