I'm friends with a great group of girls and we're doing a christmas swap this year. My partner was Brittany. (she blogs here: Yesterday's Echo, and sells her cool stuff here: in her Etsy Store) She's really girly and I was at a loss as to what to make since I'm NOT girly in any way! So... looking for inspiration, I dug into my bead box. In it, I found a lone B double strand sterling piece. It was screaming to be loved, so I had to use it. An idea was born. THEN, looking thru my beads, I found a few packs of green, blue, and pink czech glass beads. My swap item was coming together. I looked in my clasps and found the sterling heart clasp for the bracelet. Random, why did I have a 2 strand clasp just hanging out? So, that got taken out and added to my pile of supplies. Then I decided to use wire wrapping. I love doing it. The end result is so elegant. Not being able to stop at the bracelet since I still had beads left over, I also made a necklace. Oh, and THAT clasp was in my stash. Yep, I'm a hoarder. LOL
