I've been meaning to blog about this - and finally remembered to take a photograph today.
This is a bracelet that I made about 4 or 5 years ago - An embellished herringbone. As you can see - the original bracelet is white, with embellishments of an odd size seed bead I found at one of the LBS'es - I think they're like a size 14 galvanized hex, or something like that.
Anyway - this is what it looked like brand new:
Fast forward to this summer, when I suddenly had the perfect outfit with which to wear a white embellished herringbone bracelet.
Only NOW - now it's taken on a new look - like magic:
I'm assuming that the galvanized gold "tarnished", but how it managed to tarnish in several different colors is a mystery to me. Probably not to a science nerd - but it is to me. I actually like it much better THIS way - the colors really pop against the tan I've gotten this summer, and I've been wearing it quite a bit.
So there you have it. My magic bracelet. ;0)
Working on something totally new and different today. While shopping for Mom's all white beads yesterday, I came across a very cool turquoise focal, and some accent beads to go along. The colors that I'm pairing with the turquoise focal are not typical - they just happened to be hanging right next to it - and I decided I kinda liked them together. You'll have to let me know if you agree when I finally get a finished photo posted.
