Peace, Love and Harmony

Hey

I took a lil r&r time for myself the last few days. I always try to remain positive and upbeat, particularly on my blog, but sometimes it can get a lil hard. I seem to be in need of reminding myself lately that it's okay to take a step back and feel a lil blue because it's those moments that show us everything we have to appreciate in life.

As usual, I went to visit my boyfriend last weekend! It was a blast. He'll be coming down this weekend. It will only be short visit but I'm grateful for that at least. It gets lonely and boring during the week when he's not around! =P I did of course pick up some new beads and findings during my visit so I made a few new pieces which I will hopefully get posted up soon! =)

Oh and anyone who follows me on twitter knows I got my exam results lately... and I PASSED!! YAY! =) Happy with my results and going into final year next year! *scary stuff* ha ha =D

Okay so onto what ye are really interested in! I made this bracelet last Tues, got my hands on a camera yesterday so I decided to share this with ye today! I called this piece Harmony just because I felt the pastel colours gave it a very calming ambience.


Surprisingly all the beads in this except the beautiful leaf are pieces I've had for almost or over a year now. It took getting the leaf to inspire this bracelet and I like the outcome. Recently a good few of the pieces I've made have leaves in them. I love the summer/autumn feel of the leaves and the nature motif is definitely in atm with the boho chic trends!





Close up of the Bali leaf. I love adding charms to pieces because it really gives it it's own personality. This is assembled on tiger's tail and contains a mixture of seed beads, metal beads, statement and simple glass beads and swarovski crystals. And lastly two pics of the piece on =)



What do you think of this Harmony bracelet? =)

Also I was wondering what everyone would like to see more of on my blog? Please let me know! Hope everyone is having an amazing week
