A Bevy of Bracelets
Here are a few of the completed bracelets that I've been working on. Its really been fun and if I wasn't on a time deadline it would be very enjoyable. I do think, however, that working on a timeline sometimes gives greater excitement to the completion because with each one finished I smile and say 'I did it'!!
I've loved working with the various colors -- some, of course, are more special to me than others -- but I've also tried to combine colors that I might not often try. Hopefully those will appeal also. Come to think about it, are there any bad colors? Of course not!
I've used Caron's Wildflower threads as my color companion and from those beautiful combinations I've added embroidery floss to coordinate the colors. The fun part has been the decorating. I've dug into my stash, once again, and come up with fibers and beads and buttons and such in order to 'dress' up each bracelet.
