Kalahari Sands

This is my latest bracelet design. I usually take pics on a white background, but these 'Crystal brandy' Swarovskis show up better on a colored background.
I grew up in the Kalahari, and during the winter the desert sand is covered in patches of golden savannah grass.
When the rains come, the desert floor erupts with masses of wild flowers.

Bright feathers

This bracelet is a Native American design. It was done in square stitch by Nancy Binckley.
The pattern can also be stitched on a loom.

I'm busy with..... the 3D Garland Bracelet

I have just finished making this pearl and crystal bracelet. It is a 3D design because one layer of crystals and pearls sits on top of another.
The top layer has Amethyst crystals and gold pearls and the bottom layer has Violet crystals and cream pearls.
Drawing it up is going to be a challenge... but that's part of the fun!
