Andrew Thorton's October Bead Challenge
Each Design Kit contained a ceramic bead from Keith O'Connor, a terra cotta bead from RareEarth Beads, a lampwork glass headpin from SueBeads, a carved blue tiger's eye round bead, natural brass peanut chain(not in my kit-silver chain was included), Swarovski crystals and pearls, glass ancient bead replicas, and a Luxury Bead Blend.
My silver chain
The Luxury Bead Blends included Japanese Toho seed beads, Miyuki seed beads, freshwater pearls, blue aventurine, sodalite rounds, lapis lazuli rounds and other semi-precious stones, vintage sequins, German glass, and Czech glass. Each kit included a surprise element!
My bracelet design includes the ceramic bead by Keith O'Connor, the terra cotta bead from RareEarth Beads, a carved blue tiger's eye round bead along with some of the Luxury Bead Blend. I also used from my stash 2.5x40mm sterling silver curved tubes, a sterling silver lobster clasp and 2 textured silver oval beads. This bracelet fits a 7.5" wrist. I can also make it to fit a smaller wrist.
