Lucite and Bead Blog Hop Reveal

Beads for this Challenge
 Lisa Lodge is the sponsor  for the Lucite and Bead Blog Hop.  The participants got an art bead, lucite beads, and other beads to use.  The photo above shows what I was sent.  You see there is a gorgeous floral art bead and some lucite flowers and leaves in the mix.  

Purple Bracelet Listed in my  Etsy Store.

I decided that the beautiful floral bead might be lost in a necklace so I decided to make a bracelet with lots of lucite floral and leaf dangles.  I used brass to wire wrap the links of the bracelet and brass headpins to wire wrap the dangles. I also decided that this bracelet called for a dainty floral clasp.  It is hard to go wrong when you are inspired by sure a gorgeous art bead. 

Please visit the others that are in this blog hop to see what they did with their beads.
