Rosie's Scarf Bracelets

I finished my bead swap pieces  (theme was Rosie the Riveter) and sent them to my partner, and she loved them :-).

I was inspired by the red polka dot head scarf....

The first is a literal replica of Rosie's polka dot head scarf

I thought that this clasp looked a bit Targetey (Target store logo), so I made it reversible

Now it looks like a bullseye but I prefer it over Target logo...
(Love Target by the way, just don't wanna wear their logo....sorry partner)

I used herringbone stitch and varied the size and shape of the polka dots.  This was completely freeform and since I do not work with herringbone stitch often, I am super proud of the outcome.  The clasp is done in circular flat brick stitch (another newbie for me)

I finished it with silver tone to use snaps as my closure. It ended up pretty wide (about 2 inches) 

This bracelet is an abstract polka dot interpretation.  The glass bead features speckles in red, yellow white and blue and it was handmade by Tiffany Goff of Southern Gals Designs

I used a simple technique of stringing and created a multi-strand bracelet.

With some rondelles and a silver tone lobster clasp, this bracelet is delicate and sophisticated.
