Dec. 6, 2011

I was very busy this weekend making tennis bracelets. In descending order, Caribbean blue, crystal, jet, rose, and sapphire Swarovski 4mm bicone crystals with gold seed beads and gold filled lobster claw clasps. I make them using two needles and a right angle weave. I go through each crystal one way and then the other way with the other needle. This way the bicone is reinforced.
These two are Siam and Peridot Satin Swarovski 4mm bicones. I think they look great for Christmas worn together. In fact, they look great worn with my Chainmaille Christmas tree, I made a Bead Day at Terri's on 11/ 25/11.
