Black Ruffles: I used 6mm round Swarovski crystals, one 16mm Cosmic cut jet black crystal for the closure and 11/0 seed beads for embellishment. I added 2 rows of tiny beads under the crystals to give it a ruffled look.
Shades of Green: This one, I almost didn’t finished. Hubby’s first reaction was YUCK!! That usually tells me he does not fancy one of my creations. LOL!!
He said it was too drab and that I should have used a different color for the embellishment. Something like gold. As in metal gold. I finished it anyway since I wanted to try out a different way of closing off a bracelet. I had one little “button type” clasp I was dying to try out. It works like a punch in snap and adds very little length. Even though the color combination isn’t all that pleasing, it is a success to me.
And lastly, I started this one but ran out of steam, wanted to move on to something different. I will swing back around to finish it in a few days. It should be pretty. I plan to use a black crystal donut ring as the toggle. Not sure if I will add embellishments. I may leave it plain.
So… for now…giving RAW a rest!! 😀
