So the first bracelet...

is finished!!! On to the second one :) On another note--I traded a couple of beads for some earrings from a nice gal in Nove Scotia--Here's one of the pairs I received: They are the perfect length! Love them lots :) Here's her SHOP

Okay, so day two...

brings us to this point: All the bracelets have been strung, leaving about 1/4 inch or so of slack for embellishing.
A couple close-ups so you can see the spaces of seed beads. This is where I'll take my needle and thread and more seed beads to make some fringes and whatnot :)
Hopefully by the end of next week I'll have all these finished and ready to go to the Grand Island bead show!! More pictures as I progress :)

Okay, so it's been a week....

since I posted something. Almost, anyway. I really haven't made much to show lately, spacers for Etsy get kind of boring! So today, in an effort to enrich both our lives, I decided to make a little series of bracelets. Remember these beaded beads? The series revolves around those. Here's the start: My tray, filled with a bunch of things from my stash, that will coordinate with the beaded beads. Yes, this is how I work. A mess? Perhaps. No idea how they'll turn out? Most certainly! Click on pic to enlarge :) Hopefully by sometime tomorrw, these will all be strung up and ready for embellishing. Because I can never leave well enough alone, can I?
