New Skill: Braiding

Yesterday I learned this new braiding technique, and decided to use it on a bracelet made with a Chocolate Satin ribbon.  I added a Swarovski Crystal Heart dangle, and Antiqued Brass findings.  I really love the way it came out!  It's very Victorian to me, and I would love to see it on a bride. What do you think?

Crystals and Findings and Cord...Oh My!

Recently in the shop I have listed Swarovski Fancy Stone #4627 in two colors: Crystal and Chrysolite.  I love this shape and, as a beadweaver, I have used it in several creations, including this one here:
However, I understand that not everyone is prone to beadweaving, so I picked up these bezel findings to fit this exact Swarovski stone.  They are Antiqued Silver in color, and there are two different styles: one that hangs the stone Vertically, and one the hangs it Horizontally.

And, for you Soutache Sweethearts out there, I got in new colors of Soutache Cord in Antiqued Brass, Metallic Bronze, and Celery Green.
