Penny Candy Bracelet

Almost all everyone who saw this bracelet in person never failed to mention that this one reminded them of the candy they used to buy at a penny store, hence the name. I thought they're candy-looking and so yummy! But they're tiny glass beads in teardrop shapes. These beads are made in Japan by the Miyuki company. The toggles are silver plated.

This specific piece was bought by my df and colleague, Terri, as a gift to her gf. Let's spread the lovin' - start buying handmade! Thank you, Terri, I would like you to know that I appreciate your business.


Bead Crochet Bracelet

I am bidding this pretty bracelet goodbye. It's always nice to know that what I took time creating is also enjoyed by another person. This time, it's Barb who "hearts" my creation. Thank you, Barb for stimulating the economy. *wink

This bracelet is made using 11/0s miyuki glass beads (of black diamond, pink and clear colors) and some clear fringe beads also from miyuki. I strung them using guttermann top stitching/button thread then crocheted with love and care. The result is amazing! I have to admit that this piece is my most popular in 2008. Several custom made orders we made for this specific color combinations.

Please don't take a shower with this bracelet or don't wet it since it will sag. The weight of the beads on cotton thread does the trick. Again, I guarantee your satisfaction as long as I know you took proper care of the piece.

Stay Happy!
