ArtFire Beadweavers Guild Summer Fun Challenge

Each month the ArtFire Beadweaver's Guild has a beading challenge.  This month it was called "Summer Fun." For my entry I created a bracelet called Summer Memories.  The colors of the dichroic glass square reminded me of the beach - a relaxing vacation, wading through the waves, sand in my toes, a cool breeze on my face, and finding treasures.

It was a bit tricky figuring out how to constuct the bracelet so that the open space in the square focal was covered and didn't show bare skin.  (Don't want any sunburns!)  For fun, I added a small starfish under the antique glass button closure.

To vote for your favorite entry, please visit the ArtFire Beadweaver's Guild Blog.  Hope you all had a Fun Summer!


  1. That is stunning! I love how you made it work so well! I will never look at squares the same again!
