Well the day has arrived where I get to show y'all the bracelets I did for The Global Genes Project.
First I would like to thank Erin Fickert-Rowland and Christine Altmiller for organizing this blog hop. I did not start blogging until after the 7,000 Bracelet Blog Hop last year. I am so glad that I was able to learn about this wonderful hop this year. It touched my heart so much that I could make a little token to be given to a Mother or Caregiver that is deserving of so much more for all that they do to take care of and comfort a sick child. I just could not stop at one bracelet so I made four. I would have made more, but I did have other challenges I needed to work on as well.
You have a lot of hopping to do so I will not bore you with a lot of jabber. So here are the four bracelets I created to brighten the day of a well deserving Mother or Caregiver of a sick child. The color scheme for The Global Genes Project is Denim Blue.
I made this bracelet with blue Agate gemstone beads, blue glass roundels, silver tone base metal: wave bead spacers, wire, chain, and lobster claw clasp.
This bracelet was made the 8 mm blue Agate and 12mm blue Botswana glass beads, silver tone base metal: spacers, wire, chain, and lobster claw clasp.
This bracelet I stitched in a Herringbone stitch using size 8 bronze colored seed beads, 3mm denim blue Swaroski crystals, 10mm mate blue Agate beads, two 4mm bronze color Czech crystals, silver tone base metal bead caps and heart toggle clasp. This bracelet will fit up to a 9" wrist.
And last but not least a Peyote stitched band bracelet using size 6 seed bead mix and trimmed with size 11 bronze color seed beads and a silver tone base metal slide clasp. This bracelet will fit up to a 9" wrist.
Here is a list of all of the participants in the 7,000 Bracelet Blog Hop: The Global Genes Project. Please take the time to go and visit all of their posts I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
