Another Beading Frenzy

The cover of Beadwork magazine had the coolest bead woven bracelet by a woman named Glorianne Ljubich.  I decided to make one.  I changed the flowers around but I used her super design.  This is what I made.  I love it!  It was a PITA to make.  The frame was easy but those flowers....oiks. :(
And then I decided to use these carnelian beads I'd been saving.  I love carnelian so I thought I'd keep this one.  Not to be.  I got it all done and it's too short for me.  I'm bummed.  It was a brain fart.  I totally forgot to take into consideration the thickness and that I'd have to make it longer.  What a doof.   But the bracelet came out great for those with slender wrists!  6 1/2 inches is about 1/2 inch too short for me.  Boohiss.

It may be a PITA to make but how unique! Very pretty!

Floral bracelet is so appealing. You tamed it well. Carnelian bracelet is lovely, though slender. Bummer! It's going to make someone with a very slim wrist very happy.

Both pieces are really lovely. The first is so Hawaii. LOL
Glad you are beading

Love it, Moe! I like the fact that your frame does not compete for attention (color-wise) with your lovely flowers.

Ipo must be so proud of you!

P.S. Gentle hugs to B.

Ipo is proud, Sharon. She wants to eat it. :) B is doing better, thanks! :D

Love your bracelets and your story about the blue hands. I wore a blouse one time that I didn't wash first and didn't see the tag under the armpit. Someone told me about it in front of other people so I told them I was testing new blouses for JC Penney. They didn't believe me. Now I wash everything. Added you to my blog list. Love your sense of humor.
