Artbead's - The Beauty of Spring - Part 1

Here is my bracelet, celebrating "The Beauty of Spring," designed with components from Artbeads!

 The flower & butterfly ensemble was made using resin beads from Artbead's Acrylic/Resin Beads & Components collection. I'm really loving the resin beads! The colors are so vibrant and the details are outstanding! I added some Tourmaline Czech Glass fan leaves to the mix as well. The tourmaline color is so pretty and blends in perfectly! Check out Artbead's exceptional Glass beads for a wide variety of wonderful glass bead designs.

I used Sterling Silver ball headpins and added my own Spring colored Glass Druk beads to accent each resin bead. Everything attaches to Antique Silver textured oval chain, which is very beautiful. I used the cutest Sterling Daisy links  to attach 2 sections of chain to the underside of the bracelet. The 2nd daisy link attaches to a gorgeous Flower "S" clasp. I like to finish my jewelry pieces with "my signature," which can be a matching beaded dangle of some sort or maybe a charm, so for this piece, I signed it with an adorable Antique Silver ladybug charm. I think I looked at Artbead's charms for days before deciding on the ladybug! So many to choose from! I had a lot of fun making this bracelet, even though I can't count how many times I changed the layout, I'm very happy with the final result.

Come back on Saturday (the 20th) to see my earring designs. Thanks for reading!
