Jewellery Batch Number 4

I have discovered a problem with making jewellery for gifts….. I want to keep them all! So I have had to make plenty to ensure a couple are spare.

Here are the latest offerings heading for family and teachers..

Oooooh which do I keep for myself?

P.S. There were a couple more but they got snapped up by my Mum….well she is worth it!

Here are some more bracelets today using my quickly diminishing stash of treasures.

I like that every item is individual and different from the last, albeit similar.

I take pleasure in the planning and placement of the beads first to ensure there are sufficient to complete the design.  It’s like a puzzle finding the best usage of the beads and “hey presto” the design and the technique is decided for me.

It is also very therapeutic to do … until a dog swipes all the beads with his or her tail.  I know as I have repeatedly had the pleasure of retrieving all the beads.

See you again soon.

Hello again.

As promised here are some more creations using my beloved stash of beads.

And yes…. like the last lot I want to keep these too. Must make more!!!!

The soft colour tones in the beads make them a very adaptable piece of jewellery and I do like an accent bead or two.

More coming soon.

Thanks for visiting!

Something a little bit different today!

When the children go back to school, I automatically start thinking about Christmas (Shhhhh… I said it quietly).  With that in mind I have started making an assortment of bracelets ready for presents.

Here are the first lot.

I have been very brave and have raided by beloved bead stash of beautiful treasures that simply must never be used and have created these 4 bracelets which all are comfortable to wear and have a lovely movement to them.

I regret I do not know the names of any techniques because I simply start with my thread and start “sewing” as such.

The only trouble is ….. I want to keep everything for myself!

See you again soon with another creation or two!
