Pops / Chunks & beadies

Post  Cornish on Tue Oct 02, 2012 11:03 am

I had intentions of giving this pop / chunk bracelet to my Mum for her birthday but the bracelet arrived too late, so I'm saving it for christmas. I've also been making a few extra pops as I'm sure my daughter wants a bracelet too and it would be a great gift for her best friend's birthday.

and at my weekend torch time I made some halloween inspired beads.

The last one is my favourite even though it isn't perfect, it also features some lovely bat and cat murrini by Jolene (Frit & Chips)

I love the broomstick. It'll make a great charm bead for Harry Potter fans too.
I love those popper beads but am struggling with the chunky plain leather straps. Has anyone considered making a more refined strap? Such as with some plaiting? Or fabric maybe? Or for the real extravagant on a silver bangle? That'd be hugely expensive though. Just love the beads though and the endless possibilities available through changing them to match your mood or dress.

I've seen some beautiful etched copper bangles, there are also pendants and rings on etsy but the bracelets do seem to be on the more chunkier side.

thank you for your comments. Very Happy

Not yet that I've seen but I'm looking into making some myself so will look into suede. But on my research I did see a shamballa style bracelet with one popper on it, looked a bit weird.
