Bracelet Make-Over

This is the bracelet I made at Bead Fest in Kim St. Jean's "Ruffled Bracelet" class.
While I loved learning the fold forming technique, I'm don't think I would 
wear this bracelet-it's not quite my style. So I felt a bracelet "do-over" was called for.
I took it apart, re-annealed it and then was able to cut it into 3 separate pieces.

This is what I made with 2 of the pieces...now I do really like them!



Have you done any "do-overs"?

  1. You know, the first time I saw that bracelet (either in the Bead Fest program or in one of Kim's books - I forgot where exactly) I thought 'wow, cool! but I wouldn't be able to wear that!' :) I love how you made it into multiple 'pendants' instead - lovely!

  2. I love seeing statement pieces like your bracelet, but they can be impractical to wear. Your makeover necklaces are gorgeous! They have the same impact and art feeling in a wearable format. They still make me say, "Wow!"

  4. I agree with Beti! I love the bracelet although impractical, it's quite the statement piece. Your do-over creations on the other hand, they are stunning! Great work Linda!
