Buried In Betsy's Closet. Such a good feeling. As I always believe, "if you build it, they will come." They're made to order, so if anyone wants one, contact me, through the Creative Magic Esty page, or here.

All links and clasp are made with 18 gauge silver coated copper. $40
I love this bracelet. I'd been eyeing the link design for about a year. Once I figured out how to link them, I was off and running. The links were made with 4" of wire, bent into hairpin like shapes.

Nymo thread olive size D, Miyuki Delicas size 11/0, 4mm green glass beads.
The evolution of my first attempt at bead netting. I was thinking as I was stitching. I figured out how many beads to place between the connections. I figured out that the bracelet will dictate to me what type of closure it needs.... I had this tube closure left over from the mermaid bracelet. This was frustrating to learn, but it was really fun. The design possibilities are endless.

I'm really surprised that I didn't get tons of orders for these bracelets. I still have 2 available that I'm taking to the theatre, and I'm going to stand up and let the folks know that they're for sale. With the movie being shown nationwide today, I'm really surprised. The bracelet that was made for the movie looks nothing like what Ayn Rand described in the book. I'm glad my bracelet came way before the movie was even talked about. They're still for sale if anyone wants one made:
