The Runaway Bracelet

I made this bracelet as a sample for a local bead shop.

The plan was to use my lampwork beads, with their commercial components, to show shoppers how to incorporate glass into their chunky leather cord bracelets.

The plan worked.
I sold a small mountain of large hole glass beads to people who came to my trunk show yesterday.

The three beads in the bracelet were off mandrel, very amorphous, free-form donuts.
I wish I had photographed them before I put them on the bracelet (always in a hurry).
And, I wish I still had the bracelet... I sold it right off the display.

I really wanted it for myself, good thing I can make more, eh?
