Two New Bracelets

I haven't posted in a long time but I have been beading.  I finished these 2 bracelets awhile ago - love them both and they are for me.  I was so inspired by this bracelet and two others by Nancy Dale - that I thought I needed to try to make one for myself.  I made the black one first and wore it around and got a ton of compliments so I decided to make the peach colored one for a more summery look.  Nancy said she was inspired to make her bracelets by  NanC Meinhardt's Izzy and Lucy bracelets.  These are fun to make in a modified RAW stitch and I am finally feeling comfortable with RAW now. I have never used snaps for a closure on a bracelet before and I sewed the snap down backwards and boy did I stitch it securely - I will never make that mistake again. I want to thank Nancy Dale for the inspiration she is one great bead artist - visit her website here for a look at more of her amazing work.
