Practicing RAW

I know you're never going to believe this...I started something else instead of doing my current project!  lol  Or maybe you would believe it.  But I did a whole inch last night on it!  Boy, is it tedious.  I got bored quickly and so diverted my attention elsewhere.  I did try to stay with the project by beading a pendant to go with it.  Didn't work out too well.  Ripped it apart.

Here's what I did instead...little RAW bracelets I found in Bead & Button by Abby Cobb.  It's just an easy and quick bracelet, and so I made two! :)  I am definitely getting better at RAW and it's not quite as scary as it once was.  Don't get me wrong...it's still scary.  I'm going to stick with simple RAW for now.  I'll work my way up eventually.  Here are pics of my two bracelets.  I did one last night and one today.

It's kind of a raspberry pink base with metallic rosey/coppery something or others on the top.  I did the same bracelet but on the 2nd one I used cobalt blue (one of my very favoritest colors of all) and silver.  I did the embellishment a tad different on the 2nd one.  In the first one the little stacks on top are all one color.  In the 2nd one, I made the center of the stack blue so to me they look like little silver flowers on top.

There you have it...that's what's been keeping me busy.  We are having a very uneventful Father's Day.  My hubby is being very bah-humbug about the whole thing and says it's "just another day".  grump butt.  Hope you all are having a great weekend.

I love those Lisa! They look awesome! Is your project a triple spiral? You told me to guess!

My Dad would always say on Father's Day don't get me a gift, just be nice to me. LOL, like we beat on him with a switch or something!

These are both really pretty as was the bracelet in the last post. I haven't had too much time to bead lately but I do have a new cuff coming later in the week to show.

nice job on these!! i've never attempted right angle weave..instructions I've seen look so complicated! But then I've never taken time out to study and learn it. I'll just look at your beautiful work instead!!

Hey Lisa, Love the bracelets. Great beadwork as usual. I swear, you must bead at the speed of light.
