Viking Knit Bracelets

I previously made up some copper viking knit and cut it into small sections for bracelets. These are two I just put together.

PartialVikingKnitTurquoise

PartialVikingKnitOrganicBeads

The second one is my attempt at “organic” beads which I don’t have very good success at.

Two More Friendship Bracelets

I’ve been wearing two bracelets all week long at work to see how well they hold up. So far so good. And they are really comfortable. I thought about wearing them to bed to give them the real test but have yet to try it. I’m not used to wearing jewelry to bed, except earrings that I never take off. These are two more that I finished.

These bracelets are a lot of fun to make.

New Bracelets

Well, kind of. Two are the same kind I usually make. The third one is a new one.

RedIvoryAndBlueBracelets

I love the red and ivory one. I’ll probably make one for myself someday. PurpleVikingKnitThis is the new one with a piece of viking knit for half the bracelet and beads on the other half.  The viking knit is make out of copper wire. It’s made on a dowel, then pulled threw a drawplate. I carry a bag with my viking knit stuff all the time so whenever I have a few minutes I can work on it. It takes a while to get a long piece made.

New Stuff – Kinda

More bracelets. Yes, I made a lot of bracelets. I guess people like bracelets. I’ve been making a set of beads each time I torch and have several sets already made. These are the first four I made.

Green-BlueBracelets Blue-PinkBracelets

I still have several more to make up some more to come in all different colors. These are made out of copper wire and my lampworked beads.

Yoyo Flower Slap Bracelets

I got five more bracelets done. They are really easy and fun to wear.

YoyoFlowerSlapBracelets YoyoFlowerSlapBracelets2

The slap bracelets are covered with fabric, then I add a yoyo flower that is made out of fabric and/or ribbon. The reason all of them are on the purple side is because I bought a silk fabric pack as I wasn’t planning on making more than one for myself. It turned out so cute that I thought I’d make a few to sell.

More Bracelets and Some Beads

I got three more bracelets done.

GreenRoofTileRedBracelet

This one is kind of a strange color combination. The yellow poopy color is red roof tile and it does get darker when it’s heated and cooled but I didn’t realize that until after I took the beads out of the kiln. I still made it into a bracelet because there might be someone that likes these colors.

Purple-Z99Bracelets

Two purple bracelets. Who doesn’t like purple?

These are some experimental beads I made last night. I should have cleaned my beads better before taking a picture but I just got the holes cleaned and they were still wet.

FlatTransparent-ClearDiscs

Kind of pretty laying on their side, though I’m not sure how or what to do with them yet.

Two Bracelets

I made the beads and assembled these bracelets this past weekend.

Pink-GreenBracelet-2 TurquoiseSlateBracelet

I’ve got to come up with different color combinations. I’ve used the pink/green scheme before. The turquoise/slate one is a new scheme. I tend not to use turquoise glass since it can be finicky.

Two More Copper Wavy Bangles

I made a couple more in copper. I added some dome silver circles on one of them. I might do one that has the circles all the way around the bangle.

WavyBanglesDomes

I really like the rustic look. And it’s nice to wear more than one of them at a time.

Yahoo!! I Finished My Bracelet!!

I’ve been wanting a chunkier silver bracelet and finally got all the glass cabs made. The disc beads are by Outwest Beads. I only wish I could make a disc bead in one color that turns out symmetrical, much less thin layers of different colors.

SilverGlassBeadBraceletFinishedThe clasp is hidden under the left circle component. I was going to do a different clasp but I didn’t like the way it fit together so I scrapped that idea and went with a hook type clasp. If I knew that when I made the big half loop on the other side, I would have made that smaller. Oh well…..

Two Skeleton Keys With Beads

I don’t have much to show this week as I’ve been working on a bracelet that has several components so it’s a bit time consuming. I did get some glass beads made on skeleton keys. I really like to make them. It’s fun to have the beads move around.

SkeletonKeys

Because I’ve been playing with dichroic glass, these both have a bead made with it.

Okay, a sneak peek at my bracelet. I have three components done so far.

SilverGlasBeadBracelet

I still have two more components and a clasp to make. This probably won’t be the order they go in when I finish the other components, I just wanted to see what they looked like linked together.
