Finished!



Well, I finished the Alter Egos bracelet and it turned out nicely. I made it about 8 1/4" so it sits more like a bangle than a cuff. I love the wash on the black beads, too!

Sadly, the other bracelet I was working on didn't make the grade. As I was working on it and I realized that the 22/0 beads are just not strong enough and durable enough to be the base of a bracelet like that. I'm going to try it again, but as a circular two-drop peyote so it's essentially doubled. It should work much better that way.

The button matches the bracelet so well. It turned out wonderful!

Thank you, beadexplorer. I really liked how the two went together. I've been a little button crazy since then! I found some great "vintage style" buttons I'm going to have to use with something.
