My friend, Ronnie, bless her heart, is hosting a trunk show of BrisingBeads Designs before the holidays. Yay, Ronnie!
So, I had to come up with some lovelies, for the lovelies of Vegas.
Most of these still need to be edged with beads. I think I'm going to keep the edging very simple.

I find that most of the felted bracelets that I'm putting together have words somewhere in the embellishment. Maybe that's why these feels like me. Like I'm finally doing artwork that reflects who I truly am.
I've collected bits and pieces of things for so many years. It's fun to be using some of my stash.
It's also fun to hunt for new treasures, like this scrap of bullion. Stunning.

I've even been able to add bits and pieces of beadweaving, done years ago for a necklace sampler. And those dichroic squares. Yummy.
It's also nice that these can come in all sizes. The above bracelet is 6 inches wide! Talk about a statement. Makes me think that I could also embellish mittens, gloves. Even fingerless gloves. And purses. And hats.
This one is also extra large.
I love love love the scrap of daisy chain on this bracelet. I bet it's been in my stash for 15 years, something that came in a thrift store junk bag.
And sometimes, simple is best.
Or, not. :) (I think I might keep this one...)
But this one, hands down, is the house favorite. The colors and the bullion are just wonderful.

So, you think these will sell? :)
