Getting Ready for St Patrick's Day Empty Getting Ready for St Patrick's Day

Post by Gail201 Mon Feb 17, 2014 5:16 am

Now that Valentine's Day is out of the way I am looking forward to St Patrick's Day.  Here's my attempt.  I am open to suggestions for purchasing interesting Celtic silver beads.  This bracelet's silvers have the mere suggestion of Ireland/Celtic heritage: Lucky Knot, Love Spoons, Spiral, Heaven's Garden, Rosary, Loving Light.  (Someone on another thread was hoping there would be another World Tour release ...  Ireland would be a wonderful idea!)

This is lovely. I am glad to see that someone else is thinking about St Patrick's Day too. I have had mine together for a while now. I think there is a shortage of silver beads that represent the country. I have used Heaven's Garden on mine, too. Your choice of the fish lock is spot on. Your green's are saturated and give a strong impression of the Emerald Isle.

I don't own any Skye silver beads, but they would compliment this bracelet wonderfully.

Thank you for the tip on Skye silver. I will look them up.

Seems like most of my wardrobe is black and gray, at least in winter Rolling Eyes .  A colorful bracelet works well for me.

Very lovely! I've been thinking I should start to think about mine as well.

I will love seeing your bracelet.  I have been on the lookout for a unique that is green, orange and white to reflect the national flag. However, I haven't found one.  
I am going to play around with adding a white bead and an orange one.  I am thinking those chakras might look ok.  I really would like the flag represented.  We'll see.
Thanks for commenting.

Reller makes some very nice Celtic beads for about $45 US.  Here are mine:

And in a necklace combo:

They are a nice substantial weight (especially in comparison to comparably priced TB silvers!)

It turns out that I own a number of Reller beads - a conch shell, a flamingo:

And a loon:

They also have an Adirondack chair, as well as some regional charms, that are on my wish list.  Here is a link to their main page:

Love the greens! You have many beautiful ones and have inspired me to do an all green bracelet for St. Patricks day.

Hi retiredk9racer,
Thank you for going to the trouble of photographing the two silver beads. At first I was going to purchase the one on the right but now I'm leaning to the one on the left. They are interesting together on your necklace but I don't have that much room on my bracelet, so I have to choose just one.

 Agree Funny - I was thinking the same thing as Reltan. You made this look easy. However, I can't seem to pull my green beads together. Beautiful colors and combo!

Thank you for the compliment.  I have plenty of other color combos that I just can't seem to pull together, as much as I would like to.  

These green beads get a workout.  Besides March 17th, there is a large Irish Fesitval here during the summer.   (and I would rather have green on my wrist than in my beer Wink )

Your bracelet is beautiful! I love Ireland (I used to live there for almost a year in the 90s and it has forever etched itself into my heart Smile ) - Silverado has quite a few celtic themed beads, as well.
