Unhinged, I think it looks like a snake skeleton! Thanks, again, to Tracy Proctor from Tierra Cast for teaching me this stitch.
I bought a kit and knitted a bracelet. Then I went crazy and bought different cords and number 6 seed beads in every color I could find. The original was gold, and the second was hot pink. The third was silver-lined crystal knit on silver cord. I lost interest, or a life thing came up, and I never added a clasp.
Today, I found that silver bracelet bagged up with its leftover beads!
I found it in this pink gift bag, and inside are at least a dozen other zipper bags with beads and matching cords!
Now, to find the pattern!
No, they’re not chocolate! They’re polymer clay buttons! Some are shaped from molds and some are molded by hand. (the acorn, the zuni bear, and the mushrooms, for example)
They need sanding and staining and sealing. Coming soon to a bracelet near you!
I bought a kit of Softflex beading wire from Jewelry Television, and it included garnet-colored, medium diameter wire. I bought the assortment of wire because it included silver and gold-plated. I wound up intrigued with the garnet.
Laura and I got together a couple of weeks ago for one of our play dates. We made jewelry and did a little sewing. We had a great visit with Libby at Sew Blessed Quilt Shop. We ate lots of great food. The best thing was probably a strawberry margarita cupcake!
‘Wish I’d taken a picture of that cupcake! Wish I had another one!
I have been searching for this video! I thought I’d added it to my playlists.
I found the floral wire at Dollar Tree, and I am looking forward to making some of these!
I am making jewelry exclusively for the Quilt Square Girls in West Jefferson, NC!
The quilt Square Girls, Syndi (above) and Renee, specialize in Barn Quilts, and they have made over 1000! Laura and I wandered into their shop one day, and Syndi spotted one of my necklaces that Laura was wearing. “Can you make those for us,” she asked? I could, and I did!
The lavender one sold the first day! I am having the best time making these!
