AJE May Component of the Month Design Challenge
Susan Kennedy was the hostess for the Art Jewelry Elements component of the month challenge for May. She created these fun beaded beads in a dazzling array of colors. Because I already had a few sets on hand, I used what I already had in my stash.
I wanted to do a design where the beaded bead was that single splash of color, and I wanted to make a bracelet because I hardly ever make bracelets. I am very much a necklace kind of girl. So I made solid color lampwork beads using a pewtery iridescent glass pressed into a square nugget shape, then heated the center portion on both sides and pressed a spiral shape into them. As simple as these particular beads are, I love them.
Then all I did was wire wrap the beads and link them together, then add a Saki Silver clasp with a spiral design element. This thing fits my wrist perfectly.
Now that you've seen what I made, take a look at what everyone else created!
