Continuing the bracelet trend, I found another great (and quick) project from the Bead and Button archives. This one is from the February 2008 issue: What's your Bangle? by Shelley Nybakke.
This bracelet really came together quickly. The base is a tube made with size 8 seed beads using a right angle weave. The embellishment is very simple and was the easiest part of the project.
The crystals add visual interest to the piece. I used Swarovski golden shadow bicone crystals, which are somewhat subtle and pick up the color of the seed beads.
The idea of a bangle really excited me. I'd like to make another one like this in metallic gold with the same golden shadow crystals.
This project from the June 2007 issue also looks like it might compliment my new bangle. I guess a trip to the bead store is in my future.
