I am a big fan of La Bella Joya (can you tell???) and especially the Margie and Me challenges.  Marcie has gone from weekly to bi-weekly challenges to help those of us with time issues, and even with an extra week, I am late.  I was going to skip the last challenge entirely, but as I took apart a bangle I made for my daughters BFF's birthday, which in my effort to size appropriately, I didn't, it occurred to me that the blue sky color of the round beads matched the blues in the challenge picture:

The star spacers I used on the original bangle also seemed rococo-ish (making up some new English on this post, just go with it...).  I pulled out some Softflex wire in a similar blue and added pink square quartz beads.  I strung the beads in a two strand style that I love (see another example here) that makes the blue beads look like the puffy blue sky in the fresco.

I was kind of on a roll with the Softflex color wire and found a couple 2 hole spacers in the same tin with the star spacers so made this bracelet too.

You can see the other Weis Chapel entries here - enjoy!
