I think they really finish the look.
I found some bronze pearls which I ordered today
and they would probably look even better
with this colour scheme.
I like this design so much I started another bracelet straight away. All the beads give this lace jewellery a nice weight and it's a lovely piece to wear.
The bracelet is called "Starry Button Bracelet" but I think I will stick with my buttonless version of it. I like working with the metal findings and I like the look.
Here's a blue one:
The first two were made with variegated threads so I decided to use a plain colour for the next one.
Here's the last one... and my favourite so far. I have a slightly different arrangement for the beads and the way they are placed around the centre finding.
This is plain green thread with five different colours of beads,
plus a centre pearl.
I'm pleased with the idea for an alternative centre I've come up with and plan on using it for a future design. The pearl in the centre makes it look like little flowers...
