While Christi was working on the frame, Sara made two bracelets using .019 Soft Flex Metallics Beading Wire in Antique Brass color.

From Sara:

Inspired by Heather Powers, owner of Humblebeads, I paired up tubes of ceramic beads, but I tied knots between them using Soft Flex Beading Wire. Specialty beads are from Humblebeads and Golem Design Studio.
