memories and miracles


Recently I saw and pinned this bracelet and knew I wanted to make it.  Please take a look at the link, she uses Miracle beads.  I used them too but can't get the colour or shine across in my crappy photos.  They really are amazing beads, you should see them when the light shines on them, they glow.



I used 3 coils of bracelet size memory wire.  Memory wire does what it says on the tin.  It keeps its round shape.  It's made from steel so is VERY hard to cut and to work.  Making the loops on each end was very difficult and they are not neat.



It is strung with 3 colours of small Miracle beads and one large with size 8/0 black seed beads in between.  



Maybe when my lightbox arrives I can try taking another photo....

That's really pretty, I love the way miracle beads glow, they look as though they are lit up from inside

I've never heard of Miracle Beads before. Even without the extra glitz and light, this is a striking piece.

One of the unexpected side benefits of blogging is that gradually you learn a lot more about photography!

I clicked on the link and those Magic beads do glow... so yes, the one you made must be so very pretty!

Oh well done Wendy, it's ever so pretty - and I love the colour too. It does sound like this would have been hard on your hands though.
Have a happy Sunday, xoJoy

Pretty bracelet - I've never heard of miracle beads before - I'm going to have to look for them to see what they're like in person :D

I love memory wire! You've inspired me to get some out and make some quick bracelets. They are so nice since they adjust to many sizes of wrist. Thanks for stopping by my blog to comment!

I'm not a jewellery person, but I do like this style of bracelet. Enjoy it

Normally I am not a fan of the color blue,but this is a very pretty bracelet! The beads look like they have a satin finish from what I can see. Nicely done!
