Wheel of Time Bracelet and Extra Links

  I made this bracelet at Bead Fest!  I wanted to have an example of one of the Time Wheel toggles in use, so I made this to show how it works.  I decide I was a little crazy to bring only these teeny seed beads to the show with me, but I finished it and three other pieces using nothing much more than the seed beads and my porcelain beads.

Here are this week's Extra links!
