One Crayon Color Challenge Blog Hop!

I am really happy to be a part of this challenge hosted by Sally Russick.
Please visit her blog at The Studio Sublime
Normally my work tends to be in contrasting color schemes rather than monochromatic shcemes. I enjoyed the challenge of creating a piece in varying shades of ORANGE!! I,love Orange it shouts out loud! What's your favorite crayon color? Be sure to look for your favorite color on Sally's blog where you will find a lot of very talented artists for your blog hopping pleasure!
I call this "out of the swamp" any members of the "Gator Nation" out there?
Since I used rather generic findings for the clasp, I dressed it up with a little Gator. The faceted rondelles were purchased from Lydia at Beedtime Bead Shop here in Ocala. The Preciosa crystals were acquired at Birdsong Beads in Andrews, NC on one of out many trips up to Murphy.
There was no pattern for this bracelet, I just started beading in a right angle weave sort of way with some additions...



Please enjoy the blog hop today! All the artist links can be found at The Studio Sublime
-Happy Beading! Judy

  4. Hi Judy,
    Your bracelet is gorgeous. RAW is not a stitch I would just start stitching unless I have to. You did a marvelous job on your bracelet.

  21. I wouldn't have guessed right angle weave as the base pattern if you hadn'tme mentioned it. I actually thought they were all attached via wirework dangles and had to look more closely.
