The rest of my package of goodies from Artbeads was a bunch of Hill Tribe Silver Beadcaps. I've used these before and I'm in love with them for the way they dress up any old bead. The ones I chose have a floral motif engraved on them -- so perfect for spring.
I made this bracelet (yes, I'm keeping it for myself!) using white and peachy-pink freshwater pearls. These beadcaps don't make a tight fit on the pearls I chose, but that's ok. It gives the bracelet a more casual look.
If you are a regular blog reader, you already know that I like asymmetrical designs. This bracelet embraces that. I have included a small section of chain, from which I dangled a bunch of smaller white freshwater pearls. I think the effect is lovely.
And here's a photo of the entire bracelet, which I finished with a simple toggle clasp.
