From the Vault: Speckled Rounds Bracelet...

I've had a picture of this on my desktop for a few months now.  I made this bracelet as a commission for a customer.  She wanted to incorporate the blue and ivory speckled Czech glass druk beads.  I was playing around with some Soft Flex flexible beading wire and came up with this bracelet design!  Basically, I folded a length of wire in half and then alternated threading it between a single bead and two beads.  This is a great project for the colored wires AND it gives a little architectural geometry to a piece.  If you don't like the look of the exposed wire, you can easily string seed beads to disguise the wire or add some visual weight to it.
