Shiny new things. . .

Well I have been having a little sort through my collection of beads and bits and I have made a few bits using up old beads that were left over from other projescts.
The first which I thought looked great fun when it was finished was this 'charm' bracelet made using up lots of glass pearls which were left from a big order late last year.

I know it's nothing particularly out of the ordinary but I loved the pastel colours.
The next piece I made was a little more sedate. I was thinking more along the bridal lines as I had some pretty freshwater pearls I had over ordered when making a christening set earlier this year.

I thought of calling it 'Something Blue'.

The picture didn't come out quite as clearly as I had hoped but I was being 'helped' by my little boy and he was very anxious I should move on to a childs lariat which he thought was much more exciting. (Maybe because I actually let him touch it, poor thing must get so tired of hearing not that one. . . )

Just for him i'll add the lariat picture, little acrylic shells knotted onto a length of sandy cord.

What have you been making recently?

  1. I adore the shell necklace! Don't you just love turning your leftover bits and bobs into something beautiful - it's very fulfilling and you've certainly done an excellant job.


I love to hear your comments and your experiences.
