For this one, I gathered up my “green” supplies. Light green, mint green, hunter green and olive. Sparkly, shiny and matte. Even though nothing seemed to match, I made it anyway. I know I said yuck a few times. In my head. But kept going.

Next I tried pearls for the core beads instead of crystals. I used turquoise and aqua seed beads for the side arches. 5 of turquoise and 5 of aqua. I didn’t notice this until I was finished. The bracelet is reversible. Wear it one day on the turquoise seed bead side. Aqua side the next. An unexpected surprise!!

I like creating my own beaded toggle bar. It becomes part of the bracelet design and creates a seamless look. Just have to make sure it is thin enough to easily go through the toggle circle. String 14 or 16 seed beads and peyote 4 rows works best for me.

I love these Swarovski crystal circles. Pricey, but I still love them.

Every once in a while, I dust off my bag of wire. It has the “good stuff” I bought when I took a couple of wire making classes. It also has inexpensive colorful wire. Artistic wire. I would rather work with the cheap stuff and just toss my mistakes. I don’t work with wire enough to get good at it.

So… I guess I will forever make stuff like this.
