A Ring of Flowers Bracelet

First, some news

- I have just finished listing some new kits at both my Etsy and ArtFire shops.  Enjoy!

- I have recently joined a local farmer's (and artisan's) market - Central Texas Grower's Association.  They are a great group of people and I have set up twice so far.  I even sold some jewelry!  If you are in the area, I recommend stopping by (I only set up in the Seguin market, but the others also set up in San Marcos).  There are some veggie growers, a couple who sell pastured/grass-fed beef, pork and chicken, and some artisans who sell handmade soaps, crocheted scarfs and hats, creams, pizza, etc.  Sometimes the Fair Trade Coffee guy shows up as well.

On a personal note, we have lost one of our older cats - Bella - She passed away due to kidney failure last month.   She will be missed.  We have also had a rash of teeth problems, myself as well as two other of our older cats.  All is now well, teeth have been pulled and gums are healing.

Okay, now for what was promised in the title:  A new bracelet - I think it is really SWEET.  You see, I had intended to order flower cone beads with the hole from top to bottom for tassels...and ordered these with the hole from side to side instead.  So I had to come up with a way to use them and this is what I came up with.

I won't be listing it for sale right away, I need it to look at while I make some more with a few variations...plus, I just don't want to let go of it yet (selfish, I know).
