Blue Bonnet Bracelet Project

My second Designer of the Year project in the Apr/May issue of Beadwork magazine is the Blue Bonnet  bracelet. The bracelet is made with lentil beads (w/ off-centered hole) and Swarovski crystals and it has integrated closure (of course, pre-made clasps can also be used). If you like jewelry sets, one of the four design options of MariLily necklace could be a nice match for the bracelet.

I hope that time will allow me to list my original instructions for the Blue Bonnet bracelet soon, where I provide instructions on how to bead it in one continuous path, but right now I need to work on designing my LAST Designer of the Year 2013 project for the Dec/Jan 2014 issue.
I can't believe how times flies and a year of working on the DOY projects is about to end...time flies when you are having fun!
