Yes, another bracelet

Okay, I know I could have been working on Iris. I even could have finished Yellow Bird. Yesterday, I saw a bracelet in one of my bead books and just had to make it. I did have to improvise a little and had to go to the bead shop to get a few things... but it was worth it...
I had the soft green pearls but not the right color seed beads. Usually I wear silver so I had to get a gold-tone toggle and I had to have the accent green crystals....there are a little hard to see, but they are in between each pearl set. I just love how it turned out. This is close to the original pattern but I did not have enough pearls to complete so I added crystals to each end and I added the crystals to the spaces.
Thank you all so very much for the kind words for Zoe. She had not gotten lost since, but she is generally off in her own world at times.... except when she smells food, or hears a fork hit a plate! I guess it is not as important to come when called, or to sleep normal nighttime hours. A girl has to have priorities!
That is about it for today my friends. I am at the border for Yellow Bird and still have a little time before getting ready to go to work. Thank you for caring and have a wonderful day.

That's a gorgeous bracelet, Grace! You are so talented! That looks like something I would buy for myself, but I would never dream of making it myself. Amazing!
