Michelle was quick to see the advantages of making one's own jewelry. Often the beads from a broken or outmoded piece can be redesigned to make it totally fresh again and more importantly to the designer's liking.

She brought in some large lovely turquoise beads to our recent workshop that looked like they came from a broken necklace. There was enough for her to make two bracelets! This is design no.1. One fashionable colour combination is turquoise with chocolate brown which Michelle touched on when she used the oval brown picasso beads. She decided to soften the transition between the brown and turquoise colours with the use of topaz crystal rondelle beads. The Tibetan silver toggle clasp was final touch to Michelle's design.
