My friend Jamie and I went to the local bead show a few weeks back. We had a blast looking and oogling at all the pretties. I ended up buying a good amount of beads. The top bracelet is a triple strand of silver pyrite beads and a mix of stones. I added some labradorite drops to add interest in the bracelet. The second bracelet is also silver pyrite and just a mix of stones. I like the simplicity of both. The second bracelet was inspired by a bracelet I saw in the Sundance catalog. It is my interpretation.
I was fortunate to be able to take a class this weekend to learn a new technique. My class was on viking knit. It was really fun and I love the look of the knitted piece. The best part of the viking knit is pulling your piece through a draw plate and watching it get smaller and prettier.
