This week the etsyBEAD theme of the week is earthy, so I decided to make this bracelet and earrings that would fit the theme. I was really happy with my design.
Earthy Treasures Bracelet. Great earthy color beads accent this bracelet that was strung on leather cord. The beads in this bracelet are 10mm red and creme wood beads accented with an oval brown wood bead in the middle with gold tone spacers. The coils, clasp and dangles are made with copper wire, with the longest dangle 2" long. This bracelet measures 8 1/2" long, but due to the size of the large beads it will comfortably fit a person up to a 7" wrist.
And of course the matching earrings.
Earthy Treasures Earrings. These are the perfect mate to the earthy treasures bracelet. These earrings are also made with copper wire. They have red, creme, and brown wood beads to adorn these great earthy earrings. These earrings measure 3" long.

Orange Delight Bracelet. This is a memory wire bracelet that wraps around one's wrist about 3 1/2 times. It has been wrapped with grey colored artistic copper wire. Each bead has been flanked with yellow seed beads to give it added sparkle and grey wrapped wire to separate them. The glass beads are in various shapes and shades of orange, green and yellow. Each end of the bracelet also adorns wire wrapped dangles.
Memory wire bracelets are easy to put on and take off simply by wrapping around your wrist, making it an easy to wear bracelet.
