Working on some pretty bracelets !!

While working on my custom order, I have been making some pretty charm bracelets. I made a white bridal one, and now I just finished and posted a purple one. Both are available in my Etsy store.

It takes me a while. I gather the beads,  charms, and findings ,in the colors and finishes I plan to use. Then I get out my bracelet blank and make one charm per link. The bracelet blanks I am using for these have 34 links, so I make 34 charms. I used pretty glass and metal beads, occasional nice quality acrylic beads and charms.

The white and clear tray I will keep set up as I will use this tray for most of my sets. Either white, clear , or both.

I used a good amount of what I had on the purple tray, a clear got put there by mistake as well, but I will put them away and get out my next color.

I make them all up and then lay them out and them move them around until I like the order I have them in and then I start hooking them on the links one by one in the order I have laid them out.

I am going to be making a cobalt blue one with antique brass next. I love that combo of rich antique brass with the rich deep cobalt blue. One of my favorite combos to work with !!

here are some of the ones I made and sold over the years.

this looks like a black and white picture but it is just a black and clear bracelet, custom order, on a white back ground, so it looks like a black and white, but was taken as a color picture !! You can see the prayer box charm at the bottom looks silver

a smaller version, I called it a fiesta bracelet because of all the bright colors !! All tiny beads, much more petite than the others.
