Beaded Bracelets

Here are some bracelets I was working on. The spiral design is fun to do but every time I picked it up to work on it I got it wrong a few times! There's a trick to turning it as you bead and I would forget!!!
I finished the purple and green one to-day. Isn't it pretty?!?!
I usually use a toggle closure but on these I did a little something different. The flat green one is done with crystals. Tried a snap closure on this one . I rather like it as it is neat and easy to open and close.

Hi Maggie, those are lovely bracelets. I love the spiral also. Very nice colors and I love the little fish charms hanging from the clasp. Nice touch. It sounds like you are feeling better and that is GOOD news!
