Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

This project has been a good reminder that sometimes simple designs are the best…


 The small pearls enhance the lovely blue faceted Sodalite beads, rather than distracting from them.


The bracelet only required the few materials shown above, but took around two hours to make. Soldering the jump rings closed before I started (and then cleaning and polishing them), and tying a knot between each pearl as I strung them created a nicer (and more robust!) finish, but took time.


It isn’t visible in the photographs, but the facets on the Sodalite beads mean that they sparkle when they catch the light…
