It's finished.....Oceanus

It's finally done and I'm lovin it!
I wish my camera could capture the richness of the different color beads as well as all the swarovski crystals and pearls....there's some blue jade in it too!
It will have two snaps for closures...I'm dying silver ones with a nice blue alcohol ink.

I'm already thinking of starting one in purples but this one will be put up for sale...we'll see if it sells!!!

Have a blessed weekend everyone♥

work in progress...

I started a new beaded freeform bracelet last Wednesday night...this was the first couple of days work.....
The pics below are my progress to date on it....I made the greenish one above a couple of years ago, this was my first attempt as freeform and love it.

I made a commissioned piece last year for a friend and she loved it too!
I like the freeform as you never know how it's going to turn out....I also work in twos..meaning that I do each side separate and than connect them in the middle which is the focal point...I was told when I did my first one that it's not customary to do it that way but since I taught myself, it works for!

My next one is going to be in purples....yummy!

Next pic will be the finished piece!
