I don't work with a lot of Swarovski beads, largely because they're expensive, and I would rather purchase larger quantities of more affordable beads. But for some reason, I was really called to them for this piece. They're available in a wide range of colors, including lovely fall shades. So I went ahead and ordered a batch.
I'm planning to make a triple wrap bracelet, kind of along the style of the very popular leather wrapped bracelets but beaded. The colors for the wedding are red and dark blue, so I will most likely figure out a way to work a hint of blue into this piece. I obviously haven't worked out all of the specifics yet, but that's okay. I'm excited to get going on it this next month.
