|Beads sent to me by Lisa Lodge for the challenge|
|Sunburst Bracelet is available for purchase in my online store-- BayMoonDesign|
This colorful sunburst bracelet has a handmade porcelain bar that sits on top of the wrist. This cuff style is all the rage. The handmade artisan cuff bracelet is made from porcelain clay and glazed in blue, pink, amber and green by JeraLunaDesigns. I added deep purple and green beads, glass pearls, and crystals to the 2 strands that are attached to the bar with green seed beads. I also used gold beads and clasp play on the yellow sun in the porcelain and to add warmth and sparkle. This cuff bracelet is inspired by the winter sun which puts a sparkle on all of the snow and ice that we have gotten this winter.
I used a couple of the pearls in a pair of earrings that are going to appear in Bead It Today magazine this spring so I can't show you the photo of them. I will say that the charms that I used in the earrings came JeraLunaDesigns also and they are green. I am very excited about the prospect of seeing these earrings in a beading magazine.
|Lots of Greens in the Keys|
Green is a favorite color of mine. I enjoys seeing all of the shades of green in the Keys. These colors always provide inspiration. The good news for me is that I still have lots of Lisa's green beads to use! Lisa's soup of beads is always generous. Please visit the folks participating in this blog hop and leave some kind words.
