RAW and Nailheads


Two of my favorite things combined into this bracelet....the nailheads are all vintage, most likely from the 20's, but they could be as old as turn of the century...the beads are contemporary Czech true cuts...
My....I am on a green binge....must be the thoughts of spring and the new leaves just beginning to bud...

I LOVE to wear bracelets. I'm always on the lookout for interesting ones... Also, I love the nailheads you used. Vintage is cool=:)

thanks! the nailheads are getting harder to find at reasonable prices, but I've been collecting them for years (I've loved them since I started seriously beading) so I have a good stash to use.

Me too... about collecting nailheads. This is certainly a charming use for them!

I've been away teaching, so have just caught up on your posts... Love the work you're doing with the beaded beads. They look great! Your Basho piece is mysterious and intriguing, just as it should be. And I adore your second butterfly square!

I'm envious about your budding leaves. We're still pretty cold up here.

No problem about character verification... I don't mind at all.
