Amazon Warrior - Bracelet

Sometimes I get the inspiration, the time and the absolute need to bead! Lately it’s been one of those times! :-)

Half-way through making the Amazon Warrior Choker (see previous post and bottom photo) I already had a complete design worked out in my mind for a matching bracelet…. and here it is:

Amazon Warrior - Bracelet

 

I love both pieces so much that I am truly reluctant to part with either!!!!  I have to try and see if I can find more of these mother-of-pearl shell beads… I thought I bought them about 2-3 years ago, but I just realized that it must have been more like 4 years ago… the shop I bought them from closed down around two years ago and I have no idea how I'm going to find them again :-(  That will be my mission this weekend!!! because I really want a set for myself!!! :-)

Here is a reminder of the necklace I blogged about in a previous post:

Wishing all of you who celebrate Shavuot a very hag sameach!!! Eat lots of cheesecake for me… I’m (trying to be) on a diet, so none for me! :-)

My son is off kindergarten for the holiday so we will be spending most of it by the pool… I wish I could take my beadwork there! :-) maybe when he’s a bit older :-)

Wishing everyone an early wonderful weekend!!! :-)

    I hope you are able to find similar beads so you can make another ... but even if not, there is always something just as gorgeous waiting in the wings.

  10. Greetings Patrizia!
    Thanks for finding Treasures Found! Your work is exquisite. I appreciate those who can wrangle miniscule seed beads into something as beautiful as this! I have a piece in the Bead Star contest right now in the Seed Bead category with teeny tiny little 24KT gold charlottes...I ordered the wrong size since I had never worked with them before. Who knew that the bigger the number meant the smaller the hole?! It turned out to be great, but I am not looking forward to that experience again any time soon...I think I may need glasses now! You do amazing work with the cabochons. I love it! Thanks for sharing your inspiration! Enjoy the day! Erin
