Orange and Purple in all this Grey and White

I am so bleeping over winter.
Bleep this Bleep.


So here is a little color.
  Cynthia gave me the bracelet bar made by Chris Pellow.
It has been revised several times before arriving at this state.  I am finally happy with it. For over a year,  I was using purple recycled sari and these carnelians on it.  Every month I would redo the sari~carnelian combo.  Last month, I decided to abandon that and go for a spiral rope with carnelian. Works much better.  I was trying to granola this bracelet bar, but she was having none of it.




this makes me hungry for grapes...or thirsty for wine

made a toggle on the spiral end and one the carnelian side, i ended it with stacked flower beads to fit through the toggle.  i made that little pinwheel too :-)

I love this bracelet! I love purple and orange and in winter it's better than ever! I love the little pin wheel and the toggle is the perfect to finish the spiral rope.
It's Febrary so I'm hoping for an early spring!!

I don't know what you did to it but I sure know that it turned out very pretty ... and I didn't know that I was so fond of these colors together!

This is a great color combo and an awesome focal! Love the spiral, too!

It is supposed to be 58 degrees in Northern VA on Sunday...with a high of 28 by Friday. Mother Nature has been in such a bad mood lately....

I love this Christine! Orange and purple are such ying and yang together.

I feel your pain with this winter! I think Jim's son had 5 snow days in the last 2 weeks. Crazy!!! I've never seen that before. Now it is supposed to snow starting tonight into Tuesday. Seriously?!?!
