Name That Bracelet and Win a Kit of Beading Supplies from Artbeads
Our Beading Challenge in the December 2015 / January 2016 issue of Beadwork magazine showcases a lively kit from Artbeads that includes seed beads in greens and blues; a coordinating mixture of 18-, 20-, and 26-gauge wire; .019” beading wire; silver love-knot spacers; and Swarovski crystal bicones and pearl rounds.
Associate Editor Barb Switzer had the opportunity to play with this kit, and here’s the lovely bracelet she created!
Here’s what Barb had to say about using this kit: “As a beader, I split my creativity between my love for seed beading and my passion for wirework, which made this kit a pleasant surprise. All of the ocean-inspired blue bicone crystals, size 8° seed beads, and wire also appealed to my monochromatic tendencies. After I found a big focal with a large hole in the perfect color languishing in my stash, this project was halfway done. Well, not really, but the palette and materials were powerful motivators in creating my improvisational wire cuff.”
