Winter has made it's first serious appearance in Michigan this past week, complete with snow showers and freezing temperatures. It's hard to believe that just a few weeks ago we were enjoying seventy degree balmy weather... Ahh... it's so Michigan!
In honor of the "frozen white stuff," I've included a picture of my Winter Garden bracelet. It's has the sparkle and shine of ice crystals, but I think it would be just perfect for a summer bride, too. And that makes me think of warmth, rather than snow.... Yep, I'll go with that thought.
This is a variation of my favorite-of-all-time bracelet - the Cha-Cha. It's layers of flower-shaped beads, daggers, and leaves, on top of a base that used square stitch and large Delica beads.
I have published a pattern for this, available at Stony Creek Bead.
