Roses in the Night Sky

This cuff bracelet is my entry in the Etsy BeadWeavers' July challenge "Midsummer Night Dream". I have used the same technique as in the bracelet that is in my header.
I had so much fun making it, as I like to work free form very much. It took me a lot of time to finish it - about 15 hours – including the final finishing and attaching the clasp, but I sure enjoyed every minute! I am also pleased with how it came out – I like its texture and volume. I used blue-grey transparent beads for the background, so their color is changed according to the light coming through them. In the evening the background color is dark almost as the night sky and the tiny yellow beads looks like the stars in the sky… The roses are the "dreamy" part of this work.. ;)




You wouldn't believe what amazing creations the other members of the EBW team have created for this month's challenge! Many of us have chosen the same color palette, but the different techniques used made this collection be rich and varied.

  6. Smadar, what kind of freeform beadweaving is it? I wouldn't have thought that it is freeform. It's wonderful and quite unique!
