A while back, I bought some orange beads to challenge myself to use a color I don't normally work with. However, I let them sit for quite some time because I wasn't sure what to do with them. Last night, I decided that I was going to finally use those beads. This bracelet is the result.

Something else is new about this listing...I'm using music as a background instead of plain white paper. I wanted to use a more interesting background, but wasn't sure what to use. Looking around my desk, I decided the best options were either a magazine or music. I settled on music because I've always liked seeing sheet music as a background and have used a sheet music background stamp I have for that purpose in many stamping projects I've done in the past.

The music is from a beginning violin lesson book. I had it close at hand because I've recently decided to re-learn how to play violin. I took lessons from when I was in 3rd grade til I was a freshman in high school. Not too long ago I took my violin from when I was in high school into a local music shop to have it looked at and have all the strings replaced. Now I'm just waiting for my bow to be repaired and I'll be ready to go!

Back to the bracelet for a moment, if you want to see more pictures and get more information on it, you can look at the listing on Etsy here:

I'm always interested in feedback on my new listings, but I'd especially like to hear opinions on this one since I was working with a color I don't normally use, so please comment if you want to share your opinion!


  1. I love orange!! The bracelet looks wonderful.

  2. I really like the musical background - very pretty!

  3. Beth, thank you! I think it's a lot more interesting than the plain white I had been using. :)
