Beadwork - Ric Rac Bracelet redux

I really liked the ric rac bracelet that I did in a class at the Toronto Bead Society's Bead Fair. I made two more to give as gifts.

The first is done with bronze seed beads and hematite 4 mm Swarovski crystals.


I gave this to Maria to go with the necklace that she asked me to make for her.

The second bracelet was a gift for my sister's sister-in-law. My brother-in-law and his sister celebrated their birthdays together a few weeks ago. Here is the bracelet that I made for Liz using black seed beads and padparadscha AB swarovski crystals.

Beadwork - Trypillian Refined Swag Cascade

Inspired by the Trypillian exhibit that was at the ROM earlier this year Maria Rypan created the necklace with bronze and black seed beads. I made the sample for display earlier but Maria wanted to have a piece that she could wear. She started the necklace by making the base band. I finished it for her by adding the cascading swags.
