Birthday Bracelet for DD
« on: April 13, 2014, 07:58:44 PM »
As promised here is the bracelet I have been working on for Leia my daughter, for her birthday.  Her birthday is not until the 22nd but little man just could not keep the secret any longer, so we gave it to her tonight when she came home from work.  She loves it.

Thank you both so much.  It was tedious, but she loves it.  She says it is beautiful without being too awfully girlie, even with the picot edging.

Now I am off to design my triangles.

so much great work, fantastic design.  i wish i had the ability to do that intricate work.  I'll keep up with larger pieces to be put together.  i'm absolutely sure that  she will treasure this bracelet for the rest of her life.

A very beautiful bracelet.  I am sure she is very proud of her mother for making the bracelet for her. Lovely colors and beautiful bead work.

Thanks everyone.  Now if I can just get that clasp perfected.  It is a doozy to work, at least for me without strength in one arm and hand to grip and pull on the wire.  But is makes a seamless look to the bracelet that we like very much
