Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Bracelets Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog! I am so excited to hop around all the posts today showing off everyone's Wrapped and Stacked bracelets. I am amazed at all the participants! It's exciting! This just goes to show that this style is really HOT right now! I saw a few posts this morning in my blog reader feed and was floored at some of the talent out there. I know this hop will be inspiring for me!

Here is my bracelet set. I created a 4 bracelet set with 2 seed beaded bangles, 1 memory thread wrapped bangle with Ceramic button, and a macrame Waxed linen and brass beaded bracelet.


Here are some details on each bangle....
Each are quite simple but when worn together, pack a bigger punch.


This was such a fun project. I love mixing materials and adding lots of different textures and elements. This was my first project, back in the studio, after a week of being away. I really missed being in that room and being creative.











Thank you Tracy for coordinating and hosting this blog hop! It was a creative idea and I am so inspired!

 Happy Hopping!

  16. I love the mix of colours. I think it's the seed beads that help to draw them all together, and the wrapping on the green bangle, as they're all the same scale. Beautiful work!

  33. These are all pretty on their own, but yes, when paired they do pack a punch! I love the colors and am especially drawn to the green one - it's so pretty! Your blog wouldn't load for me yesterday either, and when it did it was just a bunch of pictures. (it looked just like being on Pinterest, and was rather cool actually!) Hope it's all okay now. :)

  43. I have been following you for some time. I adore how you put beads together that end up making me so happy. You have a wonderful talent for style, color, balance and design. Then you add that one last element that just makes the finished item SING! I bought the e-book Bohemian inspired Jewelry so can't wait to sit down and devour it. Thanks for being so inspiring!
