I am sharing more pictures of the completed bracelets I made for the Global Genes / Rare Project Organization's Gala to be held at the end of this month. All of the lampwork beads used in the bracelets below were handmade by Sue Kennedy of Sue Beads. This batch of pictures also includes pearls and lots of man-made sea glass beads.

|This was the first bracelet I made - sterling silver chain and LOTS of wrapped pearls.|
|I punched holes in this "Hope" ring and attached Sue's beads, along with some coordinating tiny Czech glass beads. I really love the shape of these beads that Sue made, and the colors are so bright and pretty!|
|Sue's beautiful pastel beads went well with some sea glass, two pewter heart-shaped beads, and a sterling silver "heart" charm. I added a handmade, sterling clasp.|

|Sue used a beautiful deep green in these lampwork beads - I wrapped them in sterling silver and added a handmade sterling silver clasp by Joanne Tinley of Daisy Chain Extra.|
|Along with lampwork beads, I added some wrapped clusters of Czech glass flower buds, and a handmade sterling clasp and "Believe" charm|
|Turquoise glass beads and fringe chain|

|Sue etched these lampwork beads - I love this effect - which coordinated well with some man-made sea glass beads, and a handmade sterling clasp|
|Two sets of Sue's lampwork, with some sterling spacers, chain, and a handmade clasp|
|Sue's pale lampwork beads, flecked with silver, looked so pretty with some turquoise chunks. I added a Green Girl Studio pewter "Guardian Angel" charm.|
