I haven't created new jewellery with prints of my paintings for a while now and, as I had two pendants connectors ready to be used, I thought I could create a couple of blue and green bracelets, the perfect summer accessory, especially as I just acquired some new lampwork beads by Helen G Beads from Exeter Craft Festival that I was eager to use.

Taking all blue and green beads and gemstones out to see which ones to use. Then getting everything ready: tools, beads and bronze findings.
