New Bracelets

I have new bracelets to share today. Above is the detail of the clasp from Marcia DeCoster's Rio Dulce bracelet. I started this one on the bead cruise last year and just finished it.....

Below is a crystal bracelet that I found in Bead and Button magazine from August 2009.

And the third bracelet is from a pattern from Bead Infinitum for a fringe bead, which I have strung with crystals and a rondelle.

Earlier today I met with a friend from high school - Harold, if you're reading this, I had a great visit. It was so nice to catch up and see how the years have treated us over time. I find that life, rather than being a horizontal path, is more like a spiral. It goes round, down, up, around again, it is circular, starting and stopping at different points. And, even with the down times, it is worth every minute, because it is what we have, and it is who we are.

How nice to meet someone from the past. I moved from where I grew up and never have that happen. Sad for me...and them.

That bracelet is my favorite Marcia pattern. I tried to buy the pattern for future use, but she only had kits and it was not to be for me at the time.
