I'd finished my amber bracelet off with 2 lucky knot beads but when I was looking at these photos I thought I needed a little bit more contrast as I had a lot of mid toned amber beads in this combination and it felt like my faceted ambers overpowered the bracelet slightly.
So along came the next (and final) 2 amber beads to finish this New Year's Bead Resolution. I love the one that appears light but because it has a brown core it shows up as dark.
NOW I'm finally ready to finish this bracelet.
I kept most of the central beads in place but rearranged the rest of them, I'm much happier with it this way and it's already had several trips out, it's a keeper!
