Bead Soup VII reveal

Only one Bead Soup this year but Lori has done a fantastic job of organizing and setting up partners.  It's almost midnight here and I am in the first reveal for March 30 - so here is my piece ...  




The beautiful beads are from my partner Rachel Stanley. I tend to wear more bracelets than necklaces and really wanted a two stand bracelet.  

On this bracelet I did wire guards at both ends but only added split rings at one end.  Next bracelet will have split rings on both ends and that makes it a lot easier to crimp the wire.  I used the magical crimp pliers so my crimp beads are round.  

The nice thing about bead soup is that it makes me look at how I have been making things and want to improve my designs for a more polished, finished look. 

Hopefully I have the link working www.BeadSoupBlogParty.com  so that you can go to other participants in Bead Soup VII.

And Lori - thanks again - I really enjoy these exchanges.

Your bracelet reminds me of the desert and the ocean. They are both necessary but separate, just as your bracelet shows. Wonderful!

I've been playing more with double strands, too. I'm curious to try those crimp pliers out. Right now I use regular crimpers and cover with crimp covers. I've tried the wire guardians, but ended up ditching them.
