New Bracelets

We've been busy designing this weekend.

The focal bead in this piece reminds me of an Australian river running through Australia's Katherine Gorge, a red landscape, hence the name Katherine bracelet. I've paired it with wood slices and turquoise. The focal is from Humblebead.




I finally used one of Summer Studio's bird beads - they are so sweet that. I have been reluctant to let them go, but there are a few more in the special  bead drawer.






The crazy purple of the dotted porcelain connector from Round Rabbit sent me in a totally different direction. I was in a dilemma thinking of how to use a 4 way connector in a bracelet, but I think this works. It is said that purple is the colour of feminism, so I named the  piece "Germaine" after activist and writer Germaine Greer ( pretty sure that she wouldn't  approve of such a flippant gesture!!).
