More beading! At last. It takes such effort to get all the beading stuff out and arrange it (somewhat precariously) on any available desk/table that I just don’t do it that often and I really wish I did. My mother inlaw got my involved in the whole lark. She bought me a huge beading kit for christmas a few years ago (I think she was maybe lonely for beading buddies). I saw her a weekend or two ago and she was wearing this really lovely bracelet that she had had for years.
After examining it I decided it would be really easy to replicate. So I took a photo and went home to get searching for suitable beads. This is what I came up with. I love it! My beads were a bit bigger so I used less, but otherwise its the same. It’s a really unusual bracelet, and doesn’t irritate me as I go about my day (generally I get fed up I take off jewelry even before lunch). That and it was really simple to make and only cost me about £3 (the large link chain was the most expensive element), makes it a winner for me. I think I’m definitely going to repeat it; in gold for myself and for presents for friends.
I think I’m going through a blue mood because it exactly matches my latest bargain purchase of a le creuset casserole dish. Aces!
