Bracelet Swap

ccswaps is having a Bracelet Swap. I picked up Linda Jones book, "Creating Wire and Beaded Jewelry" it's great for beginners like me. Great step by step photos. I wanted to make a bracelet that stood on it's own, but also had room for charms if the recipient desired. I used 20 gauge silver colored wire. Also made caged beads to add on. I added some drop beads to the ends of the caged beads and in between the caged beads. Here's the finished bracelet. Depending on the recipient's wrist size, I may need to make some adjustments.

Beautiful Carol. Now I know why I didn't sign up for this as there is no way I could create something like that. I am sure the recipient will be thrilled with your bracelet.

Rena I think you could do it. I was surprised at how easy it was. This book gives very clear directions.
