I like these soft pink and aqua shades, I think you have been successful this year.

Thank you both but I am not sure that I will actually wear it.  I have been creating a box full of brownish bracelets.

I don't do much in the girly realm either. One of my current favs is one that I think of as my zombie bracelet  Skull Razz 

I think your bracelet is very nice BB.  Smile  Maybe it needs a bit of orange? (My 2 year old asked why there was no orange in it since there's orange in the fabric  Rolling Eyes )

It is lovely, and quite feminine. I understand what you mean about not being your style, but one of my best bracelets is not my normal style. It is an American Southwest design that I make with turquoise agates. I get a lot of compliments on it, and usually end up wearing it with a white tee and jeans. No cowgirl boots. Very Happy

Clever comment but I was trying to get away from orange.  Most of my stuff seems to be orange and brown now.  Perhaps I need a Zombie Bracelet???  Twisted Evil

Lovely bracelet - and I totally understand where you come from. I have created many a beautiful bracelet but on my arm it screamed at me to take it apart - and instead I am wearing lots of blues and browns, as well Smile

How do BOLD strong femininity colors work for you? Your inner viking rebels against the muted demure tones  Girl as that is not who you are.

Well I think it's a beautiful bracelet, but totally understand about making up bracelets that don't end up getting worn...but I think that's OK too, exploring outside our comfort zone is healthy when being creative. That doesn't mean that every creation is something you will end up wearing Smile

well, I personally would love it just the way it is, I love to wear feminine bracelets and I do love the colours, also I love the silvers on it, and wow... you got one nice Babylonian Nymph that really looks ever so good to me!
But I also do bracelets that look good on a pic but once I really want to wear them outside, I shudder and think "what an atrocity", I think this happens to a lot of us, for me it is usually the test, if I can wear it outside, it is good, if not, it gets killed.  Very Happy

Prettily perfect but not perfectly perfect you I love you  Fun trying but there's no going against the grain when it comes to wearing. I drove back home to change my bracelet the one and only time I tried to force myself to wear a non me pretty bracelet  Laughing

I have a rule, I make it, then I have to wear it, at least once !  Twisted Evil 

Then run back to comfort zone !  I think your bracelet is lovely, feminine without being girlie  Wink

It's a perfectly well put together bracelet BB, but it doesn't look like a BB bracelet. This is a lovely interpretation of a classic version of femininity, I just don't see you as a pastel person. As for femininity, you've loads of that! Yours is strong and rich, this bracelet is soft and whimsical, both styles are feminine. I guess the test is if you'll wear this more than once.  I love you

Did you consider adding a clear yellow bead or two? I see a yellow accent in three of the lavender beads; plus I think it would tie in with the one robins egg blue bead at 2 o'clock. I made one girly bracelet and I find it refreshing to wear.

Even if it is not what you are looking for, it is a beautiful bracelet. Smile

The sun came out, I changed some of the silvers to ones that I like better, and I am wearing my bracelet.
