This bracelet is made with 6 & 8 mm freshwater pale peacock pearls (the color didn't scan well), with 24 gauge silver wire and silver findings.

Your bracelet is really a thing of beauty. I have one like that. And it comes with a necklace, as well. :o)

This is absolutely beautiful!!!! ♥

Maybe one day, if you feel like it, you could write a tutorial to explain how you made it...I would LOVE to learn from you... :-)

I could do that! It isn't that hard... if you know how to make wire-wrapped loops.

*off to figure out which program to use to do so*

Oh, would you? I'd love it! I know how to make single-strand jewelry, but I'd love to know how to do the loops.

That's really stunning. I'm such a fan of pearls, and that braclet is the lovely combination of using traditional stones and gems in untraditional ways.

Have you ever thought about putting them up for sale? I'm sure lots of people would like handmade jewellery like that...
qafhappy From: qafhappy Date: September 20th, 2005 07:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
I could, but the materials are pretty expensive. That one cost about... $65-70, then adding labor... I don't have enough time to make them for profit, and the margins are too slim. Although I don't know how much something like this would go for retail... I'm guessing around... $100? That could be way off, though.
