Leaffy Bracelets and More Publication news!!

I honestly was not expecting to get the e-mail today, but I was overjoyed when I got the news that Bead Trends Magazine has picked two more of my pieces for their February issue!! I am overwhelmed and truly humble that I am lucky enough to be published by this amazing magazine 5 months in a row. I am not bragging, so please don't think that of me, I am just so happy I wanted to share my news with you.
I have been away for the last few days so I was unable to post. I made these bracelets just before the end of summer holidays. {what a relief to have two of them in school} The top one is made with light green agate nuggets, wire wrapped and finished with this fun leaf toggle clasp. {nuggets are from Fire Mountain Gems}
This one is made the same way but with Russian Amazonite and finished with the same leaf toggle. Has anyone noticed I tend to use a lot of green? I am realizing lately that it pops up everywhere. Not a big deal really, you sell what you love and I love green. I wish I could remember where I got the Amazonite, it might have been at my local bead store. Anyways, I really love how dark it is compared to the regular Amazonite. I have been thinking of trying out the milky pale Amazonite with some black agate nuggets, just to see how it would turn out...
To be continued???
