I recently purchased the ebook Bohemian Inspired Jewelry by Lorelei Eurto and Erin Siegel two of my favorite designers. I have gone through and devoured all the designs in depth.
But now here is my problem. I have beader's attention deficit disorder I swear to you. I will have a design in my head and gather up all the beads I need for something in particular. Somewhere along the way.... I get distracted and go off in another direction. I'm sure you all don't have that problem.
Yesterday I purchased this cute little ebook online at Daisychain Extra as well. It has some simple macrame designs that I'm dying to get working on and incorporate into my bead weaving and wire work.
Wanted to make a bracelet inspired by these books and these dyed turquoise really called out to me. I had some multi-colored ribbon that matched perfectly. Instead of using a clasp, I wire wrapped a daisy shaped brass flower to the end of the bead segment. The ribbon attaches securely to that and it adds a nice accent. This was an easy project that only took about an hour and I actually stuck with it to the end. Nice cool summery colors don't you think?
