Here's a little bracelet I whipped up to match my Asian-esque shirt I wore at CHA. I've been saving the deer charm for months. Do you have little whimsies like that? You know you can't use it for just anything. I've got a barrel full of em'.
The chunky glass beads are part of Plaid's new Connect line, to be released this Spring/Summer, pink tassel is from Fire Mountain Gems (woo hoo! They come in a variety pack-more for the barrel), and the sparkly drops are from Beadalon. I threw in some little cherry blossom plastic beads to keep with the Spring pallet and Asia feel. It's ALMOST symmetrical. I had a bit of space left at the end and instead of re-doing the whole thing adding more doodly-dads, I strung another bead. Guilty. Shoulda woulda coulda, but I decided that it was a "sign" that the gap was equal to the bead's width. Seriously. I'm really having fun using all my Chinese and Asian beads. So many ideas, but I have to let the soup simmer-Regardless Vegetable, Chicken, or Bead.
