Welcome to C4 blog hop.  I want to thank Sue Kennedy and Rita from Toltec Jewels for allowing me to participate. I know there will be lots of lovely pieces on the various blogs listed below.

I received my Chicklet and took some time to think about colors that would enhance the olive chicklet and hopefully look like candy (Willy Wonka Oompas comes to mind).  I liked the red beads because they are drilled from corner to corner.  I added a mood bead because it changes color and yellow beads for brightness.  I used the purple bead and brass beads for space and asymmetry. What I really like is that on this bracelet the chicklet stays up (on the top of my hand), so many time I will make a bracelet and the focal bead ends up on the inside of my wrist.  So here it is - I find myself wearing bracelet because it has an easy, comfortable feel. Thanks for stopping by.
   I have changed the picture at it shows the bracelet off a bit better:

Very creative design. The flat shape of the chicklets is perfect for bracelets.

Ann Schroeder said...

Very cute bracelet. I love the bright colors. I'm always a fan of beads that look like candy and find myself gravitating to those as well!

Kari Asbury said...

Cute! Love the bright colors and "candy" feel of your design :)

It does remind me of candy. Skittles come to mind. Great bracelet!

Kepi said...

Very cool, super colourful, very cheerful!

Shirley Moore said...

Bright, vibrant colors! I'd like to see it on a more neutral background, to see the colors really pop. Great job!

lindalandig said...

A delicious collection of colorful beads. Nice!

Jen Ren said...

It does remind me of a box of chicklets! :)

Nan Smith said...

What a pretty, fun bracelet! I love the colours you picked to highlight your chicklet.....they work perfectly. Thanks for the inspiration. I have to get braver with colour. It's my biggest challenge these days. Seeing what you have done helps me stretch out into new combinations.

Dini Bruinsma said...
