Patchwork Bracelet

These are the beads I choose to make this bracelet. The patchwork beads were made by cutting up some flower decals with a pair of pinking shears. The delicate scroll pattern rounds are not exactly round and they've been glazed with a lovely shade of blue/purple. The cobalt glass spacer beads are a dramatic addition and the silver spacers add a touch of class. The clear lemon yellow beads are faceted glass. They add the sparkle that will make this bracelet fun.

I formed this palette with the beads and it sure is a busy palette. That made me think that I should have a distinctive beading pattern so the eye won't feel overwhelmed.

Here is the finished bracelet.
