"Crafty" Me....

I found some pretty glass beads and decided to try my hand at making some bracelets. I had seen a couple of the ladies around the campground and got to talking to them. They used Memory Wire so no clasps were needed and they can be one-size-fits-all. It worked out pretty good and I will probably make some more when I get some more beads.

These are all glass beads. The white ones are Mother-of-Pearl and the silver scallops are good, heavy silver....not junk stuff.

My favorites are the large ovals on the red and gold bracelet. They look like little street maps on the inside.

Your creations are very pretty and remind me of summer at the beach. I really love the silver shells with the red beads. Excellent!

Great usual...really nice jewelry work too! We too have been dabbling making jewelry to go with the strapless sandals...NASCAR themed of course. Using the memory wire is a great idea.
