Old idea meets new beads

Ok, so it appears noone particularly cared for the green stretchy netting. LOL! That's ok. I know how pretty it is in person.
I finally finished the 2nd bracelet that incorporates my clay beads.

I'm guessing this will be the one & only. The beads are tiny! I had taken a cool picture of a heart perched on my fingertip, but for some reason it didn't make it to the memory card. (This has happened a couple times lately.)
After straining my eyes to make the teeny beads I got to use the thinnest beading needle EVER to sew them on. The seed beads are already full of stretchy cord, so I used a glorified splinter (aka the needle) to carefully slide through. I must say though....I had forgotten how awesome Nymo thread is. That stuff is tough!

So, there it is. (I think) it's cute and the possibilities are endless. But it just takes too long to make. The little ADD monkeys in my brain nearly slit their wrists waiting for me to finish this one!

p.s...If you didn't already, click the pics. They look better full size. The 2nd pic shows the sparkliness of the silver lined red beads.

I like them both, I was just too lazy to comment the other day on the green one (sorry)!

Oooooh, I like this one a lot. I love black jewelry, and combitnations of black with something else. I would make beads of polymer and combine beads but I would always get frustrated cause the needles I would buy wouldn't go through some beads. Yea, too bad it takes too long... those bracelets are NICE.
