A while ago, I wrote a post about making some dressy bracelets to wear to work. I liked the ones I made before, but I realized I wanted something with a little more black in it. I wear black pants usually four days of each work week, with gray pants (and black shoes) on the fifth day. I knew that a bracelet featuring black would fit right in with the rest of the wardrobe!
I started with this one: a black bead and a "crystal" seed bead (so called because they have a multi-colored shine rather than just a flat, clear surface).
Here's a shot of the pair:
I'm especially pleased with these because I think they will match nicely with the other two I made before. Now I have a set of four that I can mix and match. Here's the inaugural attempt!
