Phew, so this was indeed a challenge! Back when Tracy originally offered to host this challenge, I thought I'd have no problems working on it. Lo, how wrong I was! LOL But it's all good, because luckily I'd plenty of bracelets already made, ready made, in fact, for this challenge! But then I ran into another problem. I lost the charger for my camera battery. gah. And couldn't find my husband's camera. So. There. But wait a minute, Instagram! Yeah, not the best for showcasing jewelry for a challenge, but you do learn to make do, don't you? So. WIth no further ado, here are the two stacks that I created for this challenge.
This first stack features two copper wire bangles and two linked copper bracelets featuring ceramic beads - artisan and commercial.
This next stack features one of my brass cuffs that's been highly texturized and patina'ed, along with two other multi-strand bracelets featuring Czech glass in turquoise, yellow and orange. These are my favorite bracelets right now and I wear them all of the time!
Again, as I said, not the best photographs. Once I get my battery charger found, I'll be retaking these pics with intent to reblog them. I'm sorry they're not better...seriously. Not up to my standards...but again, once must make do at times :(
Thank you so much, Tracy, for doing this awesome challenge. It was alot of fun figuring out the best combinations to showcase here! And yes, all of these bracelets were created by me. Please check out the other players on this awesome blog hop! Don't forget to start off with our lovely hostess though :) Tracy, thanks again!
