Of course, you can never get enough of a good thing!

Versailles Cuff – beaded bracelet designed by Melanie Potter
Such pretty colours! This is a gorgeous bracelet designed by Melanie Potter. I took a class with her when she visited the Portland Bead Society back in October 2015.
I really wanted to finish this because…… well, I wanted to wear it!
Very detailed and time consuming but just beautiful. The clasp is pretty interesting – a real fiddle to put together. It might help to have someone else put the bracelet on for you but I have found a way to do it myself.
The cuff is made with seed beads, delicas, Swarovski crystals and pearls.
This is the back:

Back in 2013 I took a Masterclass with Marcia deCoster, at the Bead and Button show in Milwaukee. As you probably know, she is a right angle weave queen. Particularly cubic right angle weave.
She came up with a selection of components for us to play with. I particularly liked the geometric look of the curved piece and so went ahead and mirrored and stretched it, and made 2. Along with adding stripes – just for fun.
I do love the colors she chose for each kit. This olive and gold works together and makes for an elegant look. Adding in another of her components I finally designed this fancy necklace with fringe. It’s called Chrysogonum after a creeping ground flower nicknamed Gold and Green.
Here’s a close up of the focal point.
This is a close up of the clasp which is made from another of Marcia’s component designs. The clasp conceals a snap for closure.
The necklace is made with seed beads, Swarovski crystals and pearls. It is around 19 inches long with an additional 6 inches of focal and fringe.
I made a bracelet to match:
