I love dangles on bracelets, so I gathered some large oval links and started adding lots of blue beads in Czech glass from Preciosa Ornela (and stay tuned because I'm giving away a ton of their beads at the bottom of this post!)
Since I don't know the wrist size of the person the bracelet will end up with, I used a decorative lobster claw clasp with a chain extender. Love my toggles, but having a cool lobster claw works, too!/

And now to the giveaway!
A while back, the Czechoslovakian company Preciosa Ornela contacted me to see if I'd like to review their beads. I LOVE Czech glass! The company sent me a hugely generous package of beads -- two "bead soup" packages of pressed glass and glass pearls and a LOT of seed beads, including their unique two-hole seed beads called PRECIOSA Twin.
The beads have a gorgeous luster, whether they're matte, opaque, or translucent. I'll have a design made with some of the Preciosa Twin beads soon!
You can find Preciosa Orenela at Facebook, Twitter, or their web site. They have LOTS of tutorials for you, too!
Here's what I'm giving away (and yes, international commenters are welcome!)
To one person, a huge portion of red Preciosa pressed glass beads.
To another person, a large assortment of various sizes of seed beads.
The giveaway sign ups are now over -- thanks for playing and stay tuned for more giveaways!
