I absolutely love working with these colours and I think this is my third bracelet using them. The beautiful coppery Delicas are my favourite! The carnelian chips were a gift from a friend that I was anxious to use and I have to say that I've really come to love carnelian. I really struggled as I worked this bracelet and wanted to tear it out almost all of the way to the end. Once again, I have to say...Persist! I think I read in Robin Atkins blogs ages ago, the advice not to rip things out and she's right!
