So, what's next, you ask?
Oscars Challenge 2012

We buy a lot of beads from BelloModo. They have a great selection and they only charge one dollar to send an order (of any size!) to us in the Kingdom (Canada). They're sponsoring a challenge where they invited everyone to create a piece of jewelry that was inspired by the Oscars.
Ours is inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow's fabulous white dress, cape and cuff. We thought we'd like to make a cuff. We worked 2 identical beaded micro macramé bracelets and wove them together as we went, finishing by connecting them at the button end. There are 2 loops and 3 antique buttons.
We think it turned out pretty well. It's (lucky) #13 on the BelloModo blog and, just like the T-shirt graphic contest, anyone can vote. If you're curious, please click on over and choose your fave.
As well, this piece is an orphan right now, in search of a home. $30. Email us if you're interested. (Big Cartel turned out to have one teeny, tiny problem ... the free version doesn't allow inventory control so theoretically (at least), several people could all buy this bracelet before we knew to take it off the shelf. :( And since they're one-of-a-kind bracelets, that just won't work.
