Custom delicate beaded wedding bracelets

My sister in law (whose wedding I mentioned in my last post) very kindly asked me to create two bracelets for her wedding – one for her and one for my other sister in law, who was a bridesmaid. The bridesmaid’s dress was a mid blue colour so I played around with a few designs on a blue theme and this was the one that she chose!

(It was my favourite too, so I was really pleased)

These bracelets are really delicate, made from clusters of crystals, pearls and seed beads. I just love the look of tiny beads clustered together at the moment, as I mentioned here.

The bride’s bracelet had light blue crystals, and the bridesmaid’s bracelet had mid-blue crystals to match her dress. The beads are threaded onto two pieces of flexible beading wire, with some of the beads going through both wires to create a woven look.

The bracelets got lots of compliments on the big day, I was so pleased! I was so happy with how they came out, I think I might make one for myself…

Custom necklace – wreath style pendant

After seeing my bead soup blog post which featured a wreath style pendant necklace, I was asked to create a custom version for a client. The bead soup version was very large (about 5cm across) so I scaled it down to a more wearable size (about 2.5cm across) using different beads but keeping the colour scheme the same. I also added in some AB crystal bicones for a bit of sparkle!

What do you think to the finished design?
