More Pantone & Artbeads.com - Woodbine This Time

Woodbine. Or, in other words, Army Green. You'd think I'd see enough khaki in my day to day military job, but with our latest Air Force uniforms, it's more of a dull gray than anything that would keep you hidden in a forest. So, back to pretty...Woodbine. This is Pantone's green in their Fall 2010 Color Report. Some freshwater pearls in a pretty olive color were my Artbeads.com pick...


I went with shiny copper wire to create a funky little bracelet with tons of wire wrapping--I had to practice to be imprecise.  I adore little bangles and this design was fun and quick, so I see more of them on the horizon...there are lots of pearls out there!


Disclosure...As a parter in the Artbeads.com Designers program, I received the olive freshwater pearls free of charge. I've been asked to review these products and give my honest opinion of the products...positive or negative. I am not being compensated by Artbeads.com for my endorsement as it pertains to the products received and reviewed.

  1. I love this! I like bangles too and made a ton of them last month for art market. But none so great as this one. I know what you mean about having to proctice to looser wrapping. It takes so dang long to learn how to do it precisely, it's a little hard to give up control.

  2. LIKE! Whenever I try my hand at random wire like this, I go overboard and just muck it up. You, however, hit the mark!
