Beaded Bracelets

Unfortunately, today my sewing class was cancelled due to Sue my instructor being sick. It has been rescheduled for next week. Sue, please get well!!

I started doing beaded jewelery about two years ago. It is so relaxing and enjoyable. I started about getting a kit at Michaels. They are great for anyone starting out.

The kit came with:
•1 Bead Mat
•1 3-in-1 Beading Tool
•2 Tiger Tail 3 yard (2.74m) each
•1 yard (91cm) Silver Chain
•6 Lobster Clasps
•24 Crimps
•3 Pairs Fishhook Earrings
•2 Pairs Chandelier Earrings
•10 Head Pins
•30 Eye Pins
•New Wt 8 ounce (226.8g) Glass and Metal Beads
•Easy-To- Follow Instructions
•Reusable Vinyl Tote

Here are the bracelets I made with my kit.
I made a necklace, but, unfortunately lost it in Old Towne Alexandria, VA. It was in the same color scheme as above with a Fleur de Lis charm. I must have made it too small or it got caught on my hair. I was really bummed because I liked it so very much.

I did make my Mom a bracelet with my siblings and my name and birthstone colors. Unfortunately, the bracelet broke...I guess I should have told Mom not to shower with it. LOL So, I decided to restring it on elastic cord, re-used the same beads (they were gold alphabet beads and now they are two-toned gold and silver) and my lovely Mom was the hand model.

Here is how it came out.

I also made my MIL one last Christmas with E and his brother and sister's name and birthstone. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of hers. She absolutely loved it.

I have a few other projects in beading I will be starting up. I will post pictures when I am done.

Have a wonderful evening.
