Banishing the Economy Blues

Oops. I forgot to show you the first of the Econo Bracelets. I made this one in blues. My thought was that people should be able to purchase affordable hand-crafted wearable art. Just because we're struggling doesn't mean we have to resort to mass-produced questionable metal jewelry from China. So I've decided that, each week, I'll make a super-full hand-crafted piece, always with sterling silver chain and findings, for our hardscrabble economic days. This was the first of the bracelets, which is listed in my ebay shop.

It has beads of lampwork and millefiore, Czech glass and crystal, African trade beads and wood.

There are, of course, matching earrings.
