Here's a bracelet I recently made. It's not in my Etsy shop because it's currently on display at a local gallery.
This is another of my freeform designs. I began with 4 dichroic cabs which I encased in beaded bezels. Then, beginning with the largest cab, I added to the bezel and kept on going, I then attached to the next bezel, again adding many rows of beads between the two. Did this for the 3rd and 4th cabs as well. Then as I worked, I felt I needed something more for balance, so added the blue tube - which has embedded Swarovoski crystals.
I kept working the bracelet adding different types, sizes, and colors of beads until the bracelet said, "Stop! I'm done. Just add an edge to me and a clasp."
So, that's what I did. Beads used: Delicas-size 11; seed beads, size 11; cube beads, 3 and 3 mm; and size 15/o for the edging. Clasp is a copper toggle and bar.
