Earlier in the week, Lela and I were beading together over the phone. We were working on “Garden Necklace“, a pattern by Deborah Roberti. The design left some what-if ideas kicking around in my brain. It wouldn’t leave me alone and I dug out some stash beads (hence the colors – don’t gag!) It sat for two days while I waffled about what else I wanted to add and what to do about a clasp. Beth had red drops so we did a bead swap this afternoon. Here is the Christmas bracelet it morphed into. Comments/critique are welcome!
