Changing Seasons Wire and Bead Woven Bracelet
When you move to Seattle they make you sign a contract where you agree that you’ll tell everyone that the weather here is terrible. “Rains all the time!” you have to say, because of the contract. And it’s a good thing they make you do that, because it’s one of the fastest growing cities in America right now and I’m not sure how much more growth we could handle! But I’ll let you in on a little secret… the weather isn’t so bad. Yeah, winter is kinda grey and there’s this point in the springtime when you’re ready to move to Hawaii just for a glimpse of the sun… but summers are heavenly and it never really gets too cold in winter and autumn is usually pretty darn nice. Today, October 1st, is sunny and in the 60s, and that’s pretty nice.
But I digress. My point was going to be that in fall, I always miss New England. The colors, the smells, the crisp air… it all feels to quintessentially “autumn”.
This bracelet was meant to capture that time in New England when the trees are just starting to turn and the landscape slowly turns from green to orange.
It is made with crystals, beads, C-Lon thread, a glass button and SoftFlex wire and is made using the No Warp-Ends Kit!
I love using the SoftFlex here because it allows the bracelet to hang like a bangle. I also love how you
can see through the beads and crystals to the wire warp. I also used a green thread for the beads that you peeps through.
This bracelet is so fun to wear and so easy to make!
