This stone bracelet was made on stretchy cord and incorporates a thin wire star as the "sparkly" aspect. I love the fact you can use fairly simple beads and designs while still achieving some impact or "wow" sparkle factor.
The citrine beads in between each stone are glass bicones and do add a little brightness, but no sparkle.
I wore this bracelet every day for a couple of months last year after making it and it made me so happy when it got noticed! Not because I thought I was so great, but because I thought it was fun and glad that the people noticing thought so too!
When you go down memory lane and look at the pieces you have made over time, it's interesting to see the "lessons learned" and the evolutionary design process...one idea leads to another!
