What I've been wearing lately

Post by strike on Sat Jul 18, 2015 8:33 pm

These are my three most-frequently worn bracelets right now. I've been lazy and I haven't been putting them back into my bead box, instead just storing them in the tray on top. As I took off my dragon bracelet last night, I noticed how different the colours in each are. I've been feeling like I've been in a bit of a rut lately with colours, but I guess I do mix things up a bit after all - just not all on the same bracelet Laughing

I love all three Smile The camping bracelet is super cheerful and I keep looking back at it for that. And then the dragon bracelet! I love how your dragon holds on to 2+2 and the colours look beautifully mystical. Thank you for showing the thorns bead. I was not sure about the size, but now you might just have enabled me Smile And last but not least the wooden bracelet. A magical forest full of trolls and hidden creatures and is that a dragon's heart ? I hope its owner is all right and has just stored it in a safe place Smile

What brand is the lock on the dragon bracelet? I don't remember seeing that before.

Those are great bracelets, Strike. And I think we all go through periods when we just stick to a few ready-made bracelets for a while.

Cerulean, that lock on the dragon bracelet is by Brighton. They are heavy silver-plate, not sterling, but they look good. Their older locks didn't fit Troll, but I think all their current ones do. (As far as I know, Brighton is only sold in the US.)

Thank you Trollperle Very Happy I think one of the things that surprised me was how I love them equally, but they are all different.

I really love the thorns bead, although the thorns snag some fabrics! I have a dress that I really like wearing the dragon bracelet with, but it keeps getting snagged and I'm afraid that the dress will be ruined if I continue wearing the bracelet with it. Sad Thankfully I haven't had any scratches to myself while wearing it, so it's just a matter of picking my outfits a little more carefully.

The bottom left bracelet is my zombie bracelet Embarassed My husband loves zombies, so this is kind of my bracelet for him. Not your typical love bracelet, I know Laughing The silvers aren't what will be on it in the end, I'm just waiting for the zombie release coming out in October! cheers I just hope that they aren't dangles.

Yes, the lock is Brighton. I've had it for a few years and wear it quite frequently, so even though they aren't sterling, they do hold up well to use Smile

I find this awesome Smile And I am sure when I tell my husband he will ask me why I do not wear a Zombie bracelet Smile

Love them all Very Happy ..... although I can't get my eyes off our dragon bracelet. This is just perfect!
Guess, I will have to order my dragon NOW.

And thank you too Fleur! I really love the dragon bracelet and particularly the Coiling Dragon. I would highly recommend the bead to anyone and everyone! I still needs the Faerybeads Vertebrae and I saw one other lab that I'm planning on getting. And then I think the bracelet will be done! I'm hoping that I have enough room for those two beads since I don't really want to take any of the others off Razz

All 3 of your combos are great! The camping theme bracelet is such a cool idea! But the dragon bracelet would be my favorite! There are so beautiful colors and beads on this bracelet! Smile
