April Echo Creative Club Reveal

Back in this post I shared my beautiful iris colored 'Gin Blossom' from Jeannie of Jewelry By Jeannie from her "Peeled Paint" line of beads, and here is the bracelet I made with it (please excuse the photo quality - I can't get my camera to take a decent picture of the bracelet - I promise you the purple is so much prettier in real life!):


I opted for a simple 4-strand strung bracelet in different shades of purple and cream with patinaed silver and steel accents.


Purple is one of my favorite colors to design with, and I wanted to bring a vintage feel to my piece to highlight the vintage-y feel of the focal.


I'll definitely be wearing this one!

As always, thank you Jeannie for the chance to participate in your club! Take some time to check out what these other talented and creative ECC members did with their beads this month:

What a beautiful bracelet! However, it is too pretty to call it simple! Gorgeous!

Courtney said...

I love the feel of this piece! So luscious and fun. (Purple is my fav color also.) A really wonderful piece.

Kristen said...

I love the vintage look of it and since I trust that the colors are prettier in person you could send it to me just to verify that. LOL!

Molly - I love this bracelet! You definitely created a beautiful vintage looking piece - it's so elegant. I love the shades of purple - even though you think it didn't photograph well, it did!! And of course, I love those pearls!! Beautiful design!

We need to get together so you can teach me how to 'do vintage' because I cannot get the hand of it at all!! :-)

Very beautiful and this is some of my favorite colors as I wrote in some posts...purple..!
It is very hard sometimes to get a good picture and this time I did struggle a lot too and did not succeed to give justice to the piece ..some best irl but this looks very pretty and feminine here and that vintage feel is gorgeous!

LOVE it, and love her Gin Blossoms! I used a pendant but I think I need a connector now after seeing your work! Of course you know how much I love your work (I wear it all the time!)

Beautiful bracelet Molly! I love the vintage feel and, of course, the color purple! The four unique strands really complement the gin blossom.

What a lovely bracelet. It has a classic, vintage feel to it. I could see someone wearing it in one of those Hollywood 1940s movies. (Of course, it would look great today too)!

Cindy Cima said...

The first thought that came into my head when I saw your bracelet was Gorgeous! So, I will stick with it.
I would soooo wear this bracelet!

Such a beautiful bracelet! With a Molly twist! I love that gin blossom. It looks like a piece of vintage painted tin ceiling medallion. So pretty!
Enjoy the day!
