New Bracelets and New Toggles

Right Angle Weave bracelet with my handmade tumbled stoneware beads.  The seed  beads are compliments of Auntie's Beads. They were sent to me as a promotional gift as part of their Blogger Program.  They are a size 6 Japanese seed bead.  Great color.  I got to choose the colors.

Another view of the bracelet.  All of the ceramic beads are my handmade stoneware tumbled beads.  I think they go particularly well with the the Auntie's Beads seed beads that I picked out.

This is one of my new stoneware toggles.  The toggle bar has been customed designed for me by MissFicklemedia.  I love it.  And I have many more.  What a color match.  And I can hang a dangle from it.
Another bracelet using my handmade tumbled stoneware beads.   In this bracelet I have added a couple of copper stamped rings and a copper toggle bar that I stamped with the word ART.

Here you get an overview of the whole bracelet.

And a closeup of the seed beads and the stoneware beads.

Both of these bracelets are chunky statement bracelets.

  4. I just love the new toggles, Mary. They are such an elegant and useful way to get an art bead into a design. And that Miss Fickle has a way with colors that integrate into other's work as if it was found there by happenstance. So perfect this pairing.
    Enjoy the day!

  10. These are stunning! The right angle weave was an excellent choice for the tumbled stoneware (that I am fighting not to buy at this particular moment!) and your toggle clasps are so beautiful they make the bracelets what they are!
    I am really pleased that this particular color of patina blended well with this ceramic clasp. Thank you for letting me make them for you!
