I made this one a little simpler and less fussy - ideal I think to wear with casual spring fashions.
Its has 2 sepearte links at the back which I could remove and adjust to fit a smaller or larger wrist so it can be made to measure.
This ones for sale at £32.00 and features genuine carnelian gemstone beads.

I don't know where the start of 2007 went. I KNEW I'd be too busy to keep up with this blogging!
Anyway I'm going to try and make a quick catch up now and again. I've been really busy trying to take my beading and jewellery making to the next level and teach myself some new techniques.
I've taken advanntage of some of the excellent tutorials available and one of these is for an Eni Oken style bangle (or brangle - as its half way between a bracelet and a bangle)
I am fairly satisfied with it although I must stress it is only a test piece and I didn't have quite the correct gauge of wire as I incorrectly converted from US measures to uk ones! so its a little bit rough to be honest.
However I enjoyed making it immensely and intend to be making more in this style and hopefully improving my technique.
Watch this space for more of my new designs and to any "daring cardmakers" who read this please accept my apologies for not taking part in any challenges recently.
