A few weeks ago I came across this from SJ Designs Jewelry:
If you're interested in playing along as part of a blog hop, shoot me a message and we can do a list of blog links... otherwise, feel free to share your creations in the comments of my reveal post. Reveal date will be Monday, February 22... I hope you'll join me!"
What a great idea! And I love the photo! I love to be challenged, and this challenged me quite a bit. Rarely do I use these colors in my designs, but as I started playing around with my stash of beads, I wonder why I haven't. They really go well together.
So, what did I come up with? Well, I knew I wanted something that was different, outside of the box. I decided to make a set of guitar string bracelets. As I studied the colors in the pallet, I saw a familiar color...
I had this guitar string bracelet already made. I had it in my "Maybe I'll put it in my Etsy shop stash." I made this by wrapping the guitar string with Sari ribbon and then wrapping old brown telephone wire around it. I then added a bit of lace for a feminine touch. I decided to use this as my base piece. I needed two more bracelets.
This next one, I used a bass string and then wrapped with copper wire. I wrapped green, brown and amber beads around the bracelet.
Now for my last bracelet. I used one guitar string, and decided to use some of my signature items on it...stuff from the sea! I wrapped some of the beads I used from the bass bracelet and added shells.
And there you have it. My rendition of this beautiful piece of photography....Set of Three Guitar String Bracelets February 2016 Honey Do List Challenge.
I had a lot of fun doing this, and hope she gives us another challenge....maybe next month?
