Kelli is off on an adventure so I am stepping in for her.
I saw Staci's great post about trends in jewelry and thought of something new that I saw at the ISGB conference this summer.
They are Regaliz Leather bracelets and they are super fun!
and Antelope Beads. What is really nice is Antelope Beads
has a great video on how to make one.
So not only are these cool looking but as a glass bead artist they are now making mandrels in sizes which will fit over the leather! So now I can make them unique with my own beads.
Which got me thinking that many of the polymer clay artist could also make some pretty cool beads that could slip over the leather.
I also though some of our metal artist could also make some pretty cool components to accent the bracelets.
You can also add some bright rubber o rings to spice them up even more. Whats even better is I made one of these in black with simple silver accents for my daughters boyfriend. It has always been so hard to make anything for a guy but I do think these do seem to fill the bill.
So I am hoping to make some of these and post some pictures later in the month. I would love to see some pictures and ideas from our readers!
