Drawing Inspiration from Nature-Dandelion Wine Set

Dandelion Wine Charm Bracelet Inspiration from Jesse James Beads.comI’m often asked where inspiration comes from for my jewelry making.  The answer is simple:  all over.
DandelionThe dandelions have been popping up like crazy here.  My husband wants them GONE.  My friend made dandelion jelly with them.  This is a picture of the last lone dandelion on our little lane.  The color is so pretty.  When we were kids we would swipe them across each others arms and hands to make a yellow smudge.  Simple pleasure, really.  Haha.
Dandelion Wine Bracelet with Jesse James BeadsI used 2.2 strands to make this bracelet. It went together easy because of the bead variety within the strand.  I added little gold spacer beads from my stash here and there to tie in the gold metal from the chain and clasp.Drawing inspiration from nature  for beadworkIt’s interesting to me that dandelions can be just as pretty when they die out.  Yin and Yang.
Jesse James Beads Boho Style BeadsThe detail in the Jesse James Beads boho style beads makes my heart go pitter patter.  You could make this bracelet with any strand that speaks to you.  If you like the boho beads, check out the boho strand section.
Bead drop earrings on JesseJamesbeads.comIt’s easy to whip up earrings while you’re working.  Attach beaded dangles to single links of the chain and onto the ear wires.
