Amethyst Anemone

A little fun a flirty bracelet ending up looking like an underwater anemone when photographed by my DH. The base of bracelet is a single spiral rope, then alternating ribs were embellished with loop then spike fringe bits. Lots of help from my beading chick friend, Jeanette! Part of a collection created for a bridal client. More to come! Enjoy!

What I have been up to lately

This month I completed a cuff as part of a bridal ensemble started last year when Dawn was planning her wedding. The focal bead is a lampwork bead created by Beadstarr, using dichroic glass. Quite a few hours have been spent designing and creating this piece using pearls, rocialles, 3mm and 4mm crystals, all Swarovski of course.
