'tis done.

The finished tornado bead bracelet. It definitely has some weight to it. N. said, "It's kinda crazy looking, but in a good way." Thanks, kiddo.

A closer photo of the round portion of the toggle clasp. I'm glad I made the extra effort to make it for this bracelet.

If you have some time, you should peruse Lisa Niven Kelly's gallery and workshops. She makes some amazing jewelry out of wire. I love her Big Ass Bangle bracelet and am hoping she decides to make it into a workshop one day.

This kit was fun and I think it would be a project most skill levels could finish. I actually have another one with pearls. I think if I feel up to working on a project while I'm recoving from surgery, that would be a good one to do. Still waiting to hear when the surgery will take place.

I think N might have meant "Mom, that bracelet is crazy cool!"

And I agree : )

It looks fantastic! I read your earlier post and certainly understand how sore your fingers can get. I think I've made like 20 different layering necklaces and earrings this week in CA (getting ready for my show next weekend) and my fingers are sore too!
