February Echo Creative Club

It's Echo Creative Club blog hop time again, and I am excited to share my project with you:

"Asian Influence"
I received six beautiful "peeled paint" beads in black with many shades of gold and copper leaf from Jeannie of Jewelry By Jeannie this month, and knew I had the perfect complimentary beads to go with them: old black silk beads my mom got in Thailand years ago and some funky gold pearly beads and brushed copper washers, some of which I turned into bead caps.

I put them all together using a fabulous glass toggle clasp I got ages ago from Artbeads:



By using copper-colored stringing wire, I was able to tie all the components together into one funky, dangly, bold bracelet:


"Asian Influence"

Thanks so much, Jeannie Dukic , for allowing me to participate in this wonderful club!

I spent the morning in my bead room digging through a box of old flea market goodies. This makes me want to go back and dig through it again. I love how you put together such different materials to create this. Beautiful.
