Finished, finished, finished!

I finished the paisley bracelet for the Time to Stitch Blog Hop the day after it was due, but I was trying to finish other things, and just didn't get the pics taken until today.  Along with that, I also finished the Beading Babes June Challenge.  I chose the Four-Leaf Clover Cuff pattern from Helena Tang-Lim.  The first bracelet was the green one.  I chose not to use Swarovski crystals in either bracelet, because I didn't have enough of any one color to complete the project.  So, I went to the stash and found these cute spring green rounds, and three larger faceted ones for the clasps.  I used a lined rose for the color contrast, and a  tea rose green for the green delicas.  When it was complete, I decided it was a little too matchy-matchy for my taste.  So, I decided to make one that was all about contrast.  I used fire-polished AB crystals, and black and matte red delicas.  I found three giant black beads for the clasps, and I was good to go!  So, check out the pics, and join me over at Beading Babes on Facebook to check out all the others.
