As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I dug out a bunch of old spacerbars and my minihollows as sort of the working parameters for the charms for these bracelets. Most people have specified a color scheme, and few, even some ‘don'ts’ (one person, ferex, didn't want dotties) but otherwise are leaving the project pretty open. I thought it would be fun to have a coherent ‘look’ to my charms. The only other requirement is that all findings be sterling, and any accent beads be either sterling or glass.
As you can see, some of them—this one included—also include chain. This makes for a visually and kinesthetic more complex charm.
shown hanging. You can also see my crappy gallery wrap. Yeah, I'm majorly out of practice. Note also that I've used jump rings as purely decorative, as well as functional, elements.

Kim's beads were based very strongly upon the lentil she herself used as the `seed' for her bracelet, in browns with pink and turquoise spots.
DD wanted something `chunky'. Or at least a fun shape. Hm, hard to do with mini-hollows... 14feb2012
