In Between Bracelets

Since Wednesday, all members of my household have been in various stages of illness. In between running to the store for more Pedialyte, comforting sick kids & husband and taking care of tons of laundry, I managed to steal a few minutes for myself here and there.
As the younger half of my family was passed out in blissful slumber and the older ones watched a movie, I finished a bracelet that I started years ago.
 It was over 5 years ago, while we were living in a different state, when I started making this fringed little jewel. I was excited about using the unusual beads I got. Vintage Swarovski clear crystals with an injection of milky white color floating inside each bead. Not sure why I stopped when I was so close to completing it. It feels good to have it finished.

The second bracelet took a few days, I played around a bit with different colors, trying to pair the blue/green porcelain beads with the most appealing combination. I settled on copper and Swarovski crystals in mocca.
