New Swarovski Settings
It never ceases to amaze me the ingenuity of bead makers like Swarovski, and beaders like Cathy Lampole who use new beads and settings in ways other than how they were intended.
Cathy has used Swarovski connectors as focal points at the end of this beautiful blue bracelet.
If you're interested in making this bracelet, click on her name to go to her blog where she's so generously provided the pattern for the bracelet.
Cathy has a wonderful, informative blog and is featuring new Swarovski settings. She also has a bead store. More information about her store and where you can buy her products can be found on her blog.
I've been combing the net for days trying to find something interesting to share with you since I'm in the middle of a large project and haven't produced any interesting items to show you lately. I think everyone must be taking advantage of summer to get outside and away from the computer (or recovering from Independance Day). There's either a lack of interesting new beadwork, or my taste is just really "individualized" lately. Hopefully I'll bring you something more interesting soon.
