I just received my new-to-me German Clover and decided to put together a simple bracelet for St. Patrick's Day. Green Flower was an obvious choice, as was the clover bead (I always think of 4 leaf clovers, shamrocks and leprechauns together). I added Gold Silver Trace for the pot o'gold at the end of the rainbow (couldn't use my Rainbow bead because the core is too tight for the leather bracelet), Plait because it has a Celtic feel to me, and Anenome and Sunflowers because I think of sun and flowers and the beginning of spring when St. Patty's Day comes around. I also used my new blue leather bracelet, blue for the sky where the rainbow would be.

Gorgeous, love the new blue leather, I think one will have to come home with me one of these days. Fabulous beads and great to see Plait, I don't see it very often but it is wonderful on the leather.

Thank you! I tried the black leather bracelet first, but fell in love with the blue - it has a touch of grey to it, looks great with jeans and isn't as stark as the black! I don't know why I haven't purchased Plait before today - it is a gorgeous and versatile bead! And, not one of the more expensive ones, either!!

What a great fun combo. Love the blue leather--it is on my list. I have the Plait bead, in fact it was one of my first three. It is very versatile. When I originally purchased, it was because it reminded me of woven fabric and I quilt and sew etc.

Very pretty for St. Pat's Day! That was cute how you chose all the meanings of each bead you included on the bracelet! Love that clover bead, too!

Absolutely! I actually tweaked it a bit and added the little fairy silver bead - fairies, leprechauns, all seem to go together! Can't wait to see someone else's version of it - Please post pictures when you do!

Some day I would love to be the owner of a clover bead. I absolutely love your bracelet. Having Irish heritage we celebrate St. Patricks Day and dress in green. I do not have anything other than the rainbow bead that would represent now that I am thinking about it -- I will have to look through my beads this coming week and put together a combo. I am excited about this as I can bring out all of my non-TB beads and make a combo and actually share it. I think my daughter will be happy about that too.
