The ruby briolettes were bought in Bangkok years back. It came in a long strand and it was quite pricey. The tiny faceted beads in between the freshwater pearls were from the local bead shop. As you can see the colour of the tiny beads are light pink compared to the briolettes.
Anyway this is an unusual way to use the briolettes but I like how it turned out. Another bracelet to add to my collection.

Pandora Moments Silver Bangle with Pandora Rose clasp.
From left to right: Pandora rose dazzling daisies clip, Silver shimmering lace charm, Pandora rose filled with romance charm, Royal blue nature's radiance charm, Pandora rose heraldic heart charm, Silver glittering shapes charm and Pandora rose dazzling daisies clip.
Pandora Moments Silver Open Bangle with logo caps.
From left to right: Abstract silver with faceted royal blue crystal charm, Aqua heart charm and another Abstract silver with faceted royal blue crystal charm.
Two bangles stacked together. Strong colours give the bangles focus. I think it is a nice contrast with the silver and the Pandora rose. Although blue is not my favourite colour, I seem to have many blues in my wardrobe. It should match very well.
Both the aqua heart and the royal blue nature's radiance charms are stunning. It was love at first sight for the aqua heart but the royal blue nature's radiance seems to grow on me.

I made this stretchy bracelet for myself. I prefer wearing stretchy bracelets on yoga days. It is more comfortable and east to take off and put back on. Love the colour of these freshwater pearls. I must have bought this strand from the beading shop years back. I have a lot of beading supplies from that time. The tiny black faceted spinel was a new purchase. I also got some sapphire, ruby, ruby zoisite and amethyst faceted beads to play with. They are really tiny (2-3mm) but quite pretty. Whenever I see them, I can only imagine how the tiny beads are being faceted.

This is an unusual rendition of ang ku kueh. I posted it here sometime back. Instead of it being red with green bean or groundnut filling, this is green with shredded coconut. I love it and try to buy it whenever we are near the shop.
This one brings me back to childhood days when it was one of my favourite nyonya kueh to have. It is called lumpah udang. Glutinous rice with dried prawn floss wrapped in banana leaves and roasted.

I used only two Pandora charms here. I guess it makes my bracelet a little different. This time I added the obsidian bead on both ends with a faceted black Swarovski crystal as the focal bead. The Pandora charms are Longevity lock charm (left) and the Brilliant heart bow charm (right)

I had a hard time blocking this. I wonder if I will continue with the pattern. It does look pretty. I used a ball of thread from Victor Crochet Cotton #40 in cream. The pattern is from Lee Hye-oon's book Lovely Tatting Doilies for Spring and Summer on page 91.

I got this from the gift shop during my last visit to Gardens by the Bay sometime in March 2018. It has been growing pretty well in my balcony. I thought I would show you it's tiny blooms. Not showy but still pretty isn't it? It came labeled as Viola hederacea.

Another configuration this week. I find the open bangle is the easiest to change out. Mixing and matching the charms was quite fun. This is for a more elegant look with the cubic zirconia charms.

Margaret wins the dragonfly pearl and coral bracelet as she posted comment #10. There were 11 entries. Thank you to all who participated. I think I will be making more bracelets as gifts for friends near and far. Do come back and visit. Perhaps there will be a surprise giveaway sometime in the near future. Hope you had fun.
Margaret, let me know if you need the bracelet size adjusted and it should be in the post on Monday.
