Using Up the Stash #12 - St. Patrick's Day Bracelet

Sorry I was too tired to post Tuesday. I did get a start Monday night on today's bracelet, but for some reason wrapping the cathedral glass beads onto the knot links gave me a ton of trouble and I didn't finish until today.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I wanted to make something green. While going through my stash I came upon these Celtic looking "Infinity Knot" connectors from the Blue Moon Royal Boheme collection and decided to pair them with green cathedral cut glass beads.

I wasn't totally happy with the look after I'd wired the beads to the knot connectors, so I pondered a bit and decided to add some chain. I put jump rings through the loops on each side of each knot and "strung" them through the rings rather than attaching them to give the chain a bit more movement.

Here's a long view

This view shows better how it looks on the wrist

Happy St. Patrick's Day, all!

Hi there! Just catching up on visiting. I am thinking I might have been channeling your creativity or something when I made my green/gold artbeads piece. Take a look if you get a chance, :)

You did say you weren't feeling particularly creative, maybe it snuck over to my house yesterday.I sometimes have the same thoughts as Micki at the beaded carpet too!
