Beautiful bead mix!

I love this mix of beads I stirred up from my local bead shop, The Bead Fetish It is so much fun I made 3 bracelets so far with these and will post them later.

Here is the whole shebang. I don't know why these colors popped out at me. They are a strange mix but I love them. Especially the silver seed beads, blue glass beads and the yellow pearls. I found magnetic clasps unfortunately they are better for necklaces than bracelets. I lost two of the bracelets I made with them twice! The good thing is I found them each time.

 Here is a bracelet I made using the twisted wire wrap I made on one wire. It was time consuming but so much fun! I like how it turned out. I love the stone beads! They look really good in this picture but in real life look fairly dark.

 I used a magnet clasp with this bracelet, hopefully it is strong enough. I have to test it out by wearing it all day long. I just bought some larger, stronger magnetic clasps at the bead show. Can't wait to use them!

I think I'll try this again! 

Thanks for stopping by, Chandra

I love comments :)


  1. these are very beautiful. I love the way you mix colors, texture and shape.

  2. Ooh I love the beads and the bracelet above with the silver wrapped around it. Very pretty :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by! Really like what you've done here! what a great design!

    Hey - was on Pinterest today and saw a bunch of great inspiration for wire wrapping and was thinking that I should pin it to one of our AW boards, but then realized that we don't have a 'wire board' !? perhaps we should get one! What do you think?

    1. Thanks :) Yes we should have a wire board. Do you know how to do it on Artisian whimsy?

  4. ohh, gorgeous bracelet!!. LOVE the combination of turquoise blue, grey & silver. I see you'd discovered ATCs!!. It is so fun making them, I too just discovered them earlier this year :).

  5. Yes I think I'm addicted! I love the size so I also made inspiration cards and swapped them. Very fun! Thanks for commenting and liking my bracelet.
