For years and years I have been shopping and collecting.. YOU`re right.. BEADS!
I found that I would make bracelets from a few of them.. a mix of evrything.
I call them GAIA-bracelets.
I have seen people now wear the Morten harket style.. lots of leather and bracelets around the wrist.
OK,. I make lot of these beads myself. You can find them in my beadshop at etsy http://justliss.etsy.com
Finished bracelets at my EPLA shop, I will gladely pull them over to my Etsy jewellry shop trollsmed.etsy.com
I love beads, when I go for holiday, I shop beads, necklaces, just to take them apart when I`m back home.
I have also been to Denmark to learn how to make recycled glass beads. NOW I buy them from Africa instead, I love to support giving them a job. Instead I use my torch to lampwork bottles... It makes wonderful beads!
Springtime I make bigger beads.. from hazel.. LOL: Birds love them in winter, they are filled with food, and birds can hide when we pass by.
JI love rustic beads. Rough clay, porcelain clay beads with a surface.
And I go mad at holiday when I find a shop like this...
I should have had that box......
.. Marrakech 2011.
Hera are whats in my bracelets....
I give away for free a leather bracelet when you buy one of these. http://trollsmed.epla.no.
I have used bronze for the clasp, that makes beautiful fingers... LOL.. silversmithing is a dirty job, but someones gotta do it.
This is Gaia!
Take care of her, she is the most beautiful bead we got!
