Natural Sparkle

I listed my first (but not last) bracelet with one of Lisa Peters's ceramic buttons today!

This color combination is not typical for me, but I love the way that it turned out. It makes me want to attempt another design in neutral colors.

Besides the LPA ceramic button, there are a couple other neat components in this bracelet. The wood and stone beads were a present from my mom's mom last year. She got them from the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art in Elmhurst, IL. I kept most of them for myself as simply stretchy bracelets, but when I restrung them, there were a few extras (because as most of you know, I have very small wrists). Here they are! I also used some more of my swarovski components from the Art Beads blogging program. I used Twist Crystal Silver Shade, Cosmic Olivine, and Graphic Cube Crystal Copper. Yes, my swarovski/cubic zirconia stash is finally starting to dwindle!

Disclosure - I received my ArtBead's products free of charge through their blogging program. I am honestly reviewing their products and have not been paid for my endorsement as it pertains to the products I received.


  1. I love the contrast of the natural, unglazed button with the bling of the shiny crystals. Well done!
