Lilly Pads - That's what I'll call it I thought the day we went canoeing out on Pine Lake. The pinks match perfectly the beautiful flowers sitting there sunning themselves on the water. There should be a frog, but you will have to use your imagination - perhaps prince charming is hiding in there somewhere... Eight of my handmade lampwork beads, hundreds of other accent and support crew beads. This big chunky bracelet fits my 6 1/2 inch wrist perfectly - if yours is the same size or a little smaller it will fit you too - sorry I can't resize, but I am trying to make more... and trying to figure out how to get the same look in an adjustable bracelet.
Magnolia Muse - Inspired by a photograph of a wonderful magnolia tree. This bracelet features a wonderful BIG Kate McKinnon clasp in sterling silver and two strands of glass, pearl and carved bone beads.
Early Bird I - What says spring more than a Robin Redbreast? The eggs in her nest of course. Three of my handmade lampwork beads mixed with an eclectic collection of glass, turquoise, a horn ladybug, and a nut bead. Closed with a sterling silver toggle clasp. 8 inches.
Early Bird II - Another spring bracelet in turquoise blues, greens, golds and coppery browns. One of my handmade lampwork beads mixed with turquoise, glass, resin, ceramic... closed with a sterling silver toggle. 8 inches. $45 (sold!)

Autumn I - Glowing carnelian, olive green nephrite, indian corn-colored mookaite, Karen Hill Tribe Silver. Almost 8 inches long - fits my 6 1/2 inch wrist just right.
Ancient Scrolls - I have been told these beautiful carved beads are "new jade". All I know for sure is they are pretty cool. Scrolly and earthy. Strung on soft brown leather and closed with a Hill Tribe toggle clasp. 8 1/2 inches long, fits my 6 1/2 inch wrist just great.

Extinct - Fossilized dinosaur bones and recycled computer and television monitors make this very unique bracelet a conversation piece. Plus it's so comfortable and goes with everything. 8 1/2 inches long, it's the perfect size for my 6 1/4 inch wrist.
Calm Chaos - Something about this bracelet is so messy and chaotic, yet at the same time it is calming and soothing... the mess is obviously the two handmade sterling silver wire "nest" beads, and the greenish greyish stone is chalcedony and the ancient looking blue-green stones are chrysocolla. This bracelet is 9 inches long, but because the beads are bulky, it fits my 6.5 inch wrist just right. Closed with one of my favorite sterling toggles.
Midnight Bloom - One of my handmade glass flower beads with 6 matching lampwork beads, vintage blue faceted glass beads, sterling sliver and glass seed beads. 8 inches long.

Purple Sea Star - One of my handmade starfish beads is the clasp for this fun purple glass bracelet. Features 7 more of my lampwork beads. 8 inches long.
True Blue - The perfect bracelet to wear every day with or without your jeans. Blue coral from Thailand, sky blue quartz and Bali sterling silver. Charms are wrapped on to the sterling silver chain using handmade fine silver headpins. Adjustable from 7 to 8 1/2 inches.
Lampwork flower clasp by Terri Budrow-Nelson of Washington state. Another spring favorite.

Sandy beaches, hunting for shells, digging for gold - you never know what treasure you will find. This bracelet makes me think these thoughts... and wish summer weren't heading out and that my tan wasn't fading... Hidden in the sand is one of my handmade silvered lampwork beads - looks a little like a beautiful treasure stone that you try to grab underwater but the waves keep moving it...you know what I mean - and is closed with a vintage button I snatched out of my mother's antique button box last visit - it says London on the inside of it and is either brass or copper or both - whatever it is, it feels nice and looks great with this bracelet.
A square stich bracelet that turned out Art Deco. Beaded stone cab clasp.
Raspberries and apples! The colors in this garden style bracelet are so flattering to most skin tones and will go so well with this spring and summer's fashions. Five of my own handmade lampwork beads in pinks, greens and purple, surrounded by fringes of seed and glass beads in pinks and greens. Closed with a nice chunky sterling silver trigger clasp and chain, it's adjustable from 7 inches to 8 1/2 inches.
Ladybug-red with black spots! This bracelet is made up of nine of my handmade lampwork beads - eight of them squished flat into some-what square tabs which lay flat on your wrist to make for a very comfortable wear. Closed with a nice chunky sterling silver lobster claw and chain, it's adjustable from 7 inches to 8 1/2 inches.
Eight of my handmade lampwork beads in layers of several shades of purple, mauve and violet with a subtle taupe make great swirls and patterns, and the purple bumpies sparkle like jewels.

Closed with a nice chunky sterling silver lobster claw and chain, it's adjustable from 7 inches to 8 1/2 inches.
"Black Raspberry" - this yummy bracelet just makes me smile - I haven't taken it off since I made it!
"Relaxation Bracelet" - This bracelet is earthy, yet sophisticated and feminine as well. The pink stones are rhodonite, which, if you are into what stones "do", promotes balance, love, attunement with spirituality and dispels stress. The clear brown stones are smokey quartz, which also relieves stress and promote relaxation. Pale peachy pink freshwater pearls, glass seed beads and a sterling silver clasp finish up this two strand bracelet. 7 inches. Check out the earrings section for a pair that goes perfectly with this bracelet.
A Red White & Blue bracelet for Independence Day.
