Red Orange Treasure Woven Bracelet

Handmade lampwork beads were the source of color and inspiration for this wildly colored bracelet. I echoed the white bumps on the beads with seed beads.

Faina's Scarf

I bought this merino lace hand-dyed wool yarn on an shop and used less than half of the 990 yds. So I can make another one! I was not happy with the fringe treatment called for in the pattern instructions, so I modified it and added a large tassel on each end of the scarf.

Sea Foam Woven Treasure Bracelet

I adore the colors of this bracelet!! I am having a wonderful time with these bracelets, but am wondering if I should really start to sell some of them. I can only wear one at a time!!!

Tiger Candy Corn Treasure Bracelet

These are my first polymer beads, which I really like in this bracelet, even though the beads are not so great. The bracelet is sadly a little too small for me.

Orange Retro Beads

These are my first beads from Fimo clay. Well, not actually my first beads, which I made yesterday and don't merit a posting, but these turned out really well! They are unsanded currently and I will have to experiment with that. The colors were insprired by orange and white lampwork beads which I just purchased, since orange is not normallly a color I choose.
