Linda’s Ankle Chain Remade

My friend Linda got an ankle chain as a present from her daughter. She was very sad when it broke and asked me to repair it for her. I had to change it because the original was made with cord and I always use beads only. So this is my version of the ankle chain and thankfully she’s very happy with it.

Doblado Bracelet

Double sided bracelets, I love them. In this way you get two bracelets in one. I try to make both sides as different as possible. The tiles I used as focal elements, have very different sides which come in really handy in this bracelet.

The Elephant Project Necklace

When I begin a new project, I just start playing with beads and cheap fishing line. I don’t want to spoil expensive Fireline on a try-out. Doodling about one day I suddenly had the shape of an elephant’s head. Then I used half a circle of metal wire to form the lower stiff part of the necklace. The upper half is just simply strung with beads and a toggle clasp.

Twisted Herringbone Bangle

This is the first time I tried this technique. I used size 11 seed beads but I think it works best with bigger beads to get a more substantial bracelet. But I still like this one because of the shiny faceted seed beads.

The X Bracelet III in Reds and Blues

I made this bracelet before in copper tones and blacks. I gave it away as a present and because it’s such a nice design to make, I did another one in reds and blues.
