A Festive Bracelet



What looks like another one of my posts 
about colorful Christmas ornaments-
but isn't?





This post about my festive bracelet!



I've been making jewelry for years
and I have an embarrassingly large stash of beads.
This was a great project for using some of them up.


I made this bracelet using freshwater pearls, crystal pearls, 
"Liquid Silver" and Sterling Silver findings.






Lots of great colors that go with everything...


The "Liquid Silver" is really made of tiny, fluted silver tubes 
that look like a chain when they are strung together.







There are five different strands that are entwined together 
to make it full and a bit whimsical.




Here you can see the oxidized sterling toggle clasp I used 
and the dangly pearl charm I added because, 
well, more is more....



I've made this bracelet in several different color ways, 
and I'll show you more of them soon.
I made a snowy white pearl version that's just right for New Years Eve!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
