Finished and ready to wear!!

Thought I'd share something creative that I have done.....it's been in the making for some time...actually it's been sitting on a shelf waiting for me to decide if I want to make it into a bracelet or continue on to make a necklace out of it....so guess what...it's a bracelet....VBG!

As you can see in the first photo, I put snaps on it to close it...if I put a toggle it would have been too big for my wrist....not crazy for the black snaps, so if anyone has another suggestion please post it. I put velcro on another bracelet I did in flat peyote and it looks real cheap and I don't like the way it lays....the ends curl up. The snaps keep it closed really well and when it's snapped shut you can't see them....so maybe it's ok for now!

Even tho this is my first attempt at freeform beading...it won't be my last!!
I really like the way this looks and how easy it was once I got started!
Oh I have a new pretty to wear....now where can I wear it too????
You know the photos don't do it justice....do they ever....;-)

Oh thank you ladies for your warm compliments on my bracelet.
Thanks Jan for the ideas for the snap. The snaps don't show when it's closed so...but perhaps someone out there makes colored snaps....now wouldn't that be something...lol!

Hugs,
Noel
