Rainbow chain...

Here's a little something I made with some of the free beads Tanya sent me. Using these colorful beads as a rainbow might be a little clichéd, but why not? They're fun beads!
 


I wire wrapped the mother of pearl beads into a beaded chain. Then I made a silver plated hook clasp and macramed the rest of the bracelet. I used black cotton cord and lark's head knots I learned in Macramé, Art Beads and Wire.



The bracelet was finished at that point, but I went a step further and made a wire cloud charm. It dangles neatly between the rainbow beads. A silver lining in every cloud!



Tanya sent me quite a few other beads. Check out my previous post for all of them. Be sure to have a look at Tanya's blog to find out how you might win some beads. Keep an eye out for what I make next!
