periwinkle and black is back and other recent happenings

I sold the longer version of this design earlier this month.  I still have the shorter version so I took photos and listed it.
It's available here.  This bracelet has lamp work glass rounds from Jen (blueseraphim), leaf beads from Shannon (beadsandbabble), and a ceramic button from Kristie (artisanclay).  I love combining components from different artists to make my own pieces.  And I absolutely love the periwinkle color in this piece.  It took me a long time to gather different components in the same shade that coordinated for a single bracelet, but it was worth it.  I love the Czech glass in the middle, too.  It reminds me of the vintage blue/white china plates.  These were also components that I'd had for quite a while because they were awesome, but I didn't figure out what to do with them until I got serious about putting this design together.

I'm not planning to make any more bracelets with this particular leafy variations any time soon, but I do have two made to order leafy series bracelets in the works right now.  I'm waiting to hear back from one of the sellers that I bought some red leaf beads from because she sent a different set of red beads instead.  But I have all of my new blue leaf beads so I'm going ahead with that bracelet.

Angela (AngelaDesign) included another one of my bracelets in a new treasury this week.  Beaded Cuff Bracelet - Embellished Square Stitch - Red/Purple is in her Purple and Red treasury.  Thanks Angela!


  1. Congrats on getting into that treasury! I LOVE the blue color palette. There's just something about those leaves too, I see why you love them so much. They've got such a dainty shape, really make the piece chunky with a feminine feel.

  2. Congrats on all the sales and treasuries!!! Keep it up :)

  3. I have to look up what periwinkle is. Love the name! Your bracelets are so beautiful - I can see why they get into some many treasuries! {:-D

  4. Lovely bracelet! Great color choices!

  5. Thanks ladies! Nancy, I love your thought about the leaves!
