I LOVE the Stars of the Sea Cuff bracelet by ARoseByName. Blue with stars, what more could I ask?


SarahKelley November 27, 2008 at 10:06 AM  

I'm a blue freak so this was tough!
But Maladora's Blue and Gold Nudibranch Bracelet really makes me smile.

Mistress Meeyee November 27, 2008 at 10:17 AM  

Blue Hawaii cuff is awesome and I want to win for my sweet mother. I love it and I know she is crazy for blue!!!

Marilyn November 27, 2008 at 10:38 AM  

This is Sapphire Blue but it is very close to the Cobalt Blue color that has been my favorite since Crayola had in their 64 crayon layout years ago. Maybe I should check and see if it is still a crayon color. Then I could decorate some t_shirts.

Toni November 27, 2008 at 11:22 AM  

First of all, thanks for the generous give-away. This is so fun!
I love the Serendipity Raku Focus Bead:

It's beautiful!

There is so many pretty things but Know Your Place . . . In the Food Chain Peyote Cuff is my favorite! I love the pattern.

Digital Misfit November 27, 2008 at 1:10 PM  

Blue is one of my favorite colors, and so very versatile.
Searching through the BAO selections, I see so many unique and innovative pieces. I am partial to the Beaded Fabric and Peyote Cuff (2019)
The colors are SO vivid and beautiful. The beading is gorgeous and I love the surprise of the fabric/bead combination.

Well, aside from being somewhat depressed about all of the incredible items I can't afford -- I did find something above all others that I'd beg, borrow or trade a fortune for. *snicker*

Embroidered Pendant on a Beadwoven Necklace

So many beautiful things... so little cash. *sigh*

I LOVE 'Poseidon's Deep' but it's not all blue. So... another item that IS all blue and caught my eye is 'Lisa's Heart' The bracelet itself is lovely, but the added bonus of a stoneware heart clasp by Lisa Peters makes it irresistible!

Anonymous November 27, 2008 at 11:33 PM  

I really love the "Beaded Round on chain - peacock" bracelet from found on It's simply gorgeous!


Diane November 28, 2008 at 4:59 AM
