Tropical Turquoise

Happy Friday, everyone! Aren't you glad it's the weekend? I know I sure am. The rain is pounding against my windows right now, making me sleepy. Not good, since I have to leave for work in a bit! I think I'd better pop me open a diet Coke when I'm done here. ;o)

Thankfully, I did manage to get some pics of todays project before the rain began. I made a bracelet. I wear a lot of blue, especially turquoise and soft turquoise... what would you call that? Sea blue? That's what it makes me think of. Anyway, I needed a bracelet to match, so I picked up some beads at Michael's this week while they were all 50% off.

I used Bead Gallery glass beads and Crystazzi crystals with tiny silver seed bead spacers between. I wanted this to be very versatile and go with a lot of different things, so I stuck with a simple repeating pattern. It might even match my work shirt, though that's technically French blue, but I think I might be able to get away with it. I'll try it tonight and see. ;o)

I love the shimmer in these beads. The pics don't quite do them justice, because they don't show any movement, but I think you get the general idea. I actually used these beads in a pair of earrings way back when I started this blog, if you've been around that long. I was glad they still carried them when I went back.

Well, I'm off to guzzle that diet Coke and give some attention to that neglected laundry pile that's been growing by leaps and bounds all week. Then I'll be off to work! If I get a paycheck today (I'm hoping), my employee discount will kick in, so I'll be able to do another mini blog candy giveaway in the very near future. Stay tuned! And have a great weekend!
