|New Ocean Blue Rubber X Links!|
Saturday saw me make a triple stack but it was hard not to keep using the black rubber X links as I was playing with my new metal links; so Sunday was the day I'd set aside to experiment more with the blue.
Yesterday I'd postulated that the new links look better with silver links but never one to give up on a challenge I thought I'd use all my links to make new bracelets in blue, both the silver and the bronze!
Here is the result, step by step and finally teamed with a fabric wrap.

|Double Stacked Blue X Bracelets|
|Triple stacked with a fabric wrap|
I had a lot of fun making these up in the garden, it was a sunny day for a change, so I made the most of the time! Here are the snaps I took to send to friends.
I'm still on the fence with using the blue links for me personally, I gravitate to the black naturally as I love the look with the silver and bronze X links and it's hard to break that habit, I think at the moment 9 out of 10 times I'd still end up making a black/silver/bronze combo, but that's just me!
I think the blue offers a great alternative for many people, it's a lovely colour and in looking back at the bracelets I made over the 2 days, it was the one I didn't show or have a pic of on it's own that I am most likely to choose first, a long wrap of black and blue in 2 solid colours with no other links, just rubber - you can see it below as I was messing around whilst wearing the triple stack from Saturday.

but with all the blue and even more black!
I'm dying to see more photos from others who have the blue, and what they pair them with, as I predict if I were buying this for the first time and designing my first ever bracelet - I'd probably choose different links to go with the blue; so I can't wait to see the blue with other links!
What's your verdict? What do you think to the new blue X?
