I made a Shamballa bracelet for each of my three nieces for Christmas. 
I found these beautiful beads at Beads Direct.  They are  Silver Plated Czech Crystal & Enamelled Rounds and are so pretty and sparkly - I bought more than I needed so might even get round to making something for myself....
This is the bracelet I made for niece Izzy

The pink beads were a bit more "Barbie" than I was expecting, but teamed with the white and black ones they worked really well and I was happy with the result.  I had planned to use some pink in the version I'll show next time, but they were too bright so I had a change of plan

Anyway, that's it for now - I have two unfinished cards sitting on my desk - it's not going well and I need to find a way to make at least one of them workfor adding to the Daring blog for tomorrow :-o

Happy days!

This bracelet is beautiful I bet she loved it. I keep seeing these sorts of bracelets and they are really fab, maybe I could talk you into making me a sparkly one in the future :) Good luck with the mojo has left the room so far this year so I know how you feel.

I love that colour combo - very attractive bracelet - I haven't got into trying anything like that yet (don't think I dare, have enough stuff with papercrafting) x
