Things with wings

Post by stacecase on Sun Aug 16, 2015 8:25 pm

I've been away from the forum for a long while, due to work and our summer holiday, but I finally got around to having some bead play this weekend.

I just love dragonflies, butterflies, lady bugs and the like, so I decided to create this bracelet with them all Smile

I'm not convinced of the color combo yet. I might just break this into two separate bracelets, one with the muted green/cream, etc. and one with more blues/blacks.

Or should I leave as is? Any thoughts?

I think it is perfect the way it is ,I really like the way the blue beads have a little green in them tying in the green beads.

Your bracelet is really pretty, I love the dragonfly at the top. I also like the two black glass beads, kind of remind me of insect eyes. cyclops Very Happy

Nice combo, I like the colours together. Is the big round dragonfly ball from P'dora?

I adore your bracelet! The color combo is great and the lovely dichroic glass beads puts an extra highlight on the bracelet! I would keep that combo as a permanent for sure! Smile

Beautiful!  I think the colors are nice and would match lots of things--so would be easy to wear often!

I made some small tweaks to this bracelet, adding a bit more black/blue and now I love it even more Smile

I especially like the 50% off "Flower of Dawn" from Bead Castle and the Milan "with a twist" that I found at Trollbeads Gallery while on a business trip to Boston Smile

Although, now I see it on screen, I think I need to move some stuff around again Razz

Wow, I love your dragonflies... (do I get an other addiction within the addiction???)

However, one little comment: from my point of view the diachronic bead (is that the correct word???), I mean the one to the left of the big round silver dragon fly bead, is too dominant and I would replace it. Hope you don't mind my frank suggestion...
