Bead Soup: Spotlight Is Finished!!

More designing frustration….

I just spent a week, on and off, making this bracelet. Beads sewn on the wrong side. One section larger than the section it connected to. Loops for clasp beads not lined up. Etc, etc. At times, I wanted to cry. But I kept going. I am so glad I stayed the course. It’s done. Finally.

Now I get to shout from the rooftops. All finished and ready for its closeup. I like the name Spotlight. Wearing this, all eyes will be on you.

Bracelet can be worn as a choker. I ran two lengths of royal blue satin cord through the end peyote tubes.

See the matching ring. I made that too.

I used Beadalon Elasticity for the clasp loop beads. I didn’t want the loops to add to the bracelet length. They “hug” the blue glass beads just as I planned. I am happy with it.
