Bubble Bracelets


This is the “tween” time of the year when it’s still cold outside, but the stores have Spring showing on the inside. I’m supposed to be designing Spring/Summer jewelry, but my mind-set for this is out of whack. I’m hoping for warm weather soon!

In the meantime, I’ve been working on bracelets that will fit most any season. I saw some earrings on Pintrest that gave me the idea for the bracelet construction shown below and have enjoyed putting them together. I like the bracelets best, but have also used the technique for earrings and a necklace.

Faux bracel

Each bead is on a separate headpin and I like making my own with the torch. I’ve also made wire squiggles for the end of some of the pieces. I used simple closed loops to connect some of the headpins and wrapped loops on other bracelets. This varies the look somewhat.

The amethyst bracelet shown directly above also sports a few extra dangles at the ends of some of the beads.

Faux earrings

I enjoyed showing the 20 people who came to our Faux jewelry makers group how to make these last week. We had some nice pieces made.

I’ve had such a good time with these that I finally had to make myself move on to the next project. . . . but then, a gal can never have too many bracelets!
