Beaded Bracelets

This week I wanted to share some bracelets I made a few years ago. The designs were all by Deb Roberti. Check out her designs on her website http://www.aroundthebeadingtable.com. She has such beautiful designs for bracelets, necklaces, and pendants. Her designs were very easy to follow and the beads easy to find.

I have made some bracelets on beading magazines and have found them to be a little hard to understand. Also, their designs require a lot of expensive beads. If you want to learn intricate beading, try Deb Roberti’s designs first and then you will really enjoy beading a lot more. I really LOVE her designs and have tons of her patterns.

Below are some of my favorite bracelets. Over the past 5 years, I have made over 80 pieces of jewelry, 80% are bracelets. I like making bracelets because I have a very small wrist and had trouble finding adult sizes that would fit me. So, I will share pictures of those items in the coming weeks. I am still trying to find time to create new ones but these days I am outside watering and caring for my plants a lot! Maybe in the fall and winter I can do more.

Alexandra Bracelets

Another color combination of the Alexandra bracelet…

Nexus Bracelet

I don’t remember which bracelet this is.

I also don’t remember the name of this one below but it is probably a variation of one of the other bracelet patterns that I doubled up to make it into a cuff bracelet. I like the wider bracelets so most of the designs I made were at least an inch wide.

I have made a lot of jewelry items in pinks, purples, and greens. I am attracted to those colors in the garden and also in these beaded jewelry as well.

That’s all for this weekend! I hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you are. In Southern California, these next few days will be hot as it was the last few weeks.
