Beaded Bright

I really enjoyed this Design Seeds color palette with the warm colors tempered with my favorite color-aqua. So here’s the piece I made. I can’t seem to stop making bracelets! Maybe I need an intervention, but really I love making them.

'Budapest Spice Market'

I named it ‘Budapest Spice Market’. I wish I could say the inspiration came from visiting there, but I’ve only seen blog articles on this beautiful place. The name popped into my head while creating the piece, and so there you have it.

There are a couple lampwork beads from Lyndas Lampwork, and one from Two Sister’s Designs. And I could not help adding that sweet floral polymer clay bead from Too Aquarius, it’s my last one—sniff, sniff. The gorgeous metal clasp and components are from Keirsten Giles, my recent Bead Swap partner. Oh it was difficult to let go of that sweet clasp! Keirsten does magical things with copper! Also included are a couple orange fiber beads from Gritty Bird, and a dark orange and aqua lampwork bead I believe from Quinlan Glass.

Thanks for visiting! Please check out Shannon's blog to see what she created, and to play along.

I hear you on that bracelet making thing! I can't stop either :-) I love wearing them too - love that you can see them whilst on. And this bracelet is cool! I just commented on Shannon's blog too, it is so interesting seeing what people come up with using not only the same colours, but exactly the same inspiration board. We've all gone in completely different directions! Which is great. And that clasp is indeed, awesome.

Hi Alice,
I love the bracelet it is gorgeous!
You gave it the perfect name it does remind you of the beautiful colors of spieces in a Turkish market. I have never been to Turkey either, just seen pictures it is a beautiful country.

Great work! So many designers and you've wrangles them all into such a cohesive look. I need to find me some of this bracelet mojo you've all got going on. Again this looks so fun to wear

Thanks for playing along again :-)

Gorgeous bracelet! Love the colors....the title you gave it, and all the components. I can see why you hated to let go of that's so pretty!

No intervention needed...keep going girl! :)

Oh wow! What inspiration you got from this palette!! I'm loving the texture the metal beads add as well as your mix of beads! Wonderfully done.
