Blue Monday - Newly made blue beaded jewellery

For Blue on Monday, I would like to show some newly made blue, beaded jewellery. First is this stretch-bracelet that I made from large flat round lampwork glass beads that I took from a necklace that I hade done several years ago.

I wasn't happy with the design idea I had back them and just cut it apart and used the large beads to make the bracelet.

I had so much fun making the first bracelet that I went on to make a second stretch-bracelet out of other kinds of blue glass beads. These are silver-lined and seem to almost glow .

And while I'm at it, I may as well make a matching necklace too. Oh dear. I don't have enough oval beads to make a good length. I want this necklace to be a matinee or princess length and not a choker. No problem! I just added some round beads to increase the length.

That was fun. I wonder if I can do something with these very, very large lampwork beads that l have had laying around for a long time. Why not make a short necklace with them?

And while I'm at it, here's a bracelet with the same small glass Czech beads. Too bad I don't have enough of the big lampwork beads for a bracelet. Sometimes you have to make the bracelet simpler. Sometimes it's the other way around. (The cat's eye glass bead is from China.)

Thank you for visiting my jewellery studio for Blue on Monday.
Hope you all have a happy week!

Best wishes,

Such beautiful jewelry! They're all gorgeous, but I really love that first bracelet. I don't really wear jewelry, but I still think these are just amazing!

I just love the color of those beads. Blue has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. They are all very nice but i think the first bracelet is my favorite.

All the blue beads \are such a pretty shade. Its fun to take apart pieces you aren't that fond of and remake them. Now you have so many different matching sets..and you had fun creating.

Thank you for sharing and Happy Blue Monday to you.
