Jewelry

I like to take larger beads and create a ruffle around them, so I was working on some brown ones thinking I would make a complicated necklace from them. Then reality set in. I don't like brown; I don't wear brown. Did I really want to spend so much time on a necklace? NO It wouldn't look good close to my face anyway.

The result became a bracelet, because I just needed to stitch the finished circles to ribbon that had stabilizer behind it. It's backed with ribbon to have a finished lining. The edging is picot stitch. A button and loop became the closure.

Next I'll work on a color I like!

So, if you don't like brown, how did those beads sneak into your stash? lol I like the design of this bracelet and I'm looking forward to seeing it in different colors.
