AJE Component of the Month – Rebekah Payne

This month, it was Rebekah’s turn (Tree Wings Studio) to provide the Component of the Month!  I was excited about this because I almost immediately knew what I wanted to use with the bead I received. 

 I chose this olive green one with white and copper dots!  Look at the texture on the side of the bead – I really nee to know how she did this – it looks like stretched taffy! 

 I had purchased these chunky pearls at a bead show here in Pittsburgh a few months back, and I was so glad I did!  They go perfectly with the bead Rebekah sent me!  I also used two copper lantern beads I had left from a Bead Soup a while ago. 

 I did NOT, however, have the perfect clasp to go with it, and while I want to make one, I decided to look on etsy and see if I could purchase one.

I found this great toggle clasp from hummingbirdsupply on etsy and this it goes perfectly, with the dots on the clasp.  The only thing that might not work is if it’s too antiqued, which I can change, of course, or just go ahead and antique my copper beads.  Can’t wait to get it and finish this bracelet – it’s a keeper!
