i have been working on some "prototype" bracelets to sell at the upcoming moab show. i wanted to develop some bracelets that would enable me to keep the cost down on them, but still have a rustic, organic feel, and fit with my work. i could picture them in my mind, and i wanted to incorporate leather. i've been collecting large-ish, flat-ish beads to use. can you please tell me what you think of them? they are a bit of a departure from my usual work...
i made all of the components, all sterling
prehnite with epidote
and blue chalcedony
i would REALLY appreciate your thoughts on these. brown leather? black leather? no leather? are the toggles too big? the center shapes? are they too jumbled?
