A Gift For a Friend

I made this bangle a little while back but never posted anything on it.I really love this one and I know it went to a good home.

I got these beads from a friend of the family (she’s my youngest sister’s godmother). I absolutely fell in love with them. They were so beautiful, and when the light hit them, they were even more beautiful. I wanted to make sure to thank her for this wonderful gift and all the other ones. She has sent me a number of different kinds of beads over the years; everything from glass beads to really wonderful coral beads. So I felt she definitely deserved a gift to thank her.

I used these fantastic beads to make a Ndeble rope. Because the beads are vintage, they were a little irregular, so I had to make sure to find the ones that were the same size, but I really love how the rope looks. The beads irregularities give it so much charm. I wanted to pair it with a lampwork bead, so I used some fantastic purple and pink frit I got as a RAGOK (thank you) to make a focal bead. I’m really happy with the bead now. I didn’t like it when I made it because I just couldn’t get the shape uniform. I kept trying, but I was slowly loosing the spirals in the middle, so I had to just call it a day and anneal it. But now I’m pretty happy with how it looks. And I know she loves it just as much.

I have a multi-strand bracelet listed in my store using the same beads.I posted a picture of it before, but here’s a little reminder of what it looked like. I’m in love with both styles. The beads just are so amazing, it doesn’t really matter what you do with them.
