Rose Garden Charm Bracelet

I've been trying out some beading lately, and this is something that I made. I really like it! I'm not going to sell this one. My mom liked it so much, I'm going to give it to her. But maybe I can consider it a prototype for some that I might make in the future.

These would be a little more special than my necklaces because the whole thing is hand-beaded. So I'd probably only be able to do one every now and then. :)

The beading became surprisingly quick once I got the hang of it. I made a keychain too yesterday. Maybe I'll post a picture of that later. It was actually intended to be a bracelet too, sort of like above, but I thought it was a little too clunky for that (I like my jewelry a little more delicate), so I turned it into a keychain. ;)

So I'm having some fun with some beading! I hope to have some new artwork soon! I have to finish a commission first, but I'm working on a couple things in between.

Thank you!

I ordered my beads from fusionbeads.com They have free shipping! :) Michael's has some beads, and a newly opened Hobby Lobby has a nice selection. I was disappointed in Hobby Lobby's art supplies section though. At least for watercolor. The had a good supply of oils and acrylics, but the only watercolors they had are Van Gogh, and that isn't one of my favorites.
