I have finished the Cherry Blossom Bracelet kit by Laura McCabe! I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
There are three flowers and a lot of fringe. The crystals on the fringe provide some added sparkle - always a good thing in my book.
Because I made the band longer than I needed to, I had to adjust the placement of the embellishment so that it's slightly off-center. On my wrist, it is centered.
I think the cherry blossoms would make cute earrings.
I decided to freeform the placement of the flowers and fringe instead of following the placement on the instructions exactly. I also changed up the layout of the flowers. The instructions called for the green-ish flower to be between the other two.
My flowers and fringe are also placed more tightly together than in the instructions. I like the look of them bunched up rather than spaced apart, especially when the bracelet is on the wrist. The kit for this bracelet was the mustard colorway. When last I looked, I didn't see this colorway on the Beads East site. I purchased it at Bead & Button last year.
Now I have to decide what to work on next. Another Laura McCabe kit? I have a few more waiting in the wings.
