Official Jewelry for the New Year

Finally!

I ended up using the red and green bracelet I made last month as a prototype for this bracelet. For this version I used black beading wire, clear swarovski crystals and black diamond.

The first time I put it on I realized I should have had my Ott Light on while making this...

There is a tanzanite crystal in place of one of the black diamonds. :) That's the beauty of home-made when I am the one doing the making. It adds character!

Have a great new week in the new year!! I made a simple pair of earrings as well that I'll share in tomorrow's post.

Very Pretty.

That's a very pretty, lightweight design. Since I just discovered a wrong color in the bracelet I'm working on, I can totally relate. I definitely decided it would be "character", since I was not going to rip it out and start over! Thanks for the description.

I love love love love this bracelet!!!! I'm curious how you got the wire to look like that. Is there a crimp under the crystal? Beautiful, beautiful bracelet!!!!

Hi Fitzy! I didn't use crimps and miraculously, the tension of the heavier beading cord keeps them in place. Occasionally, I need to even them out. GLAD YOU LIKED IT! Email me if you need help with it. :)
