Crafting this time to give to friends for christmas presents, oh and one for me!!! :-) I hope this is the in the right place! I'm not much of one for beading, I'm more a crocheter, but just before Christmas each year I get a real urge to bead! I think its because it is such a nice indoor activity while watching old cheesy TV for me!!
Onto the projects
Purple necklace, I think I made this last winter but didn't have anyone to give it too, I gave it to a pal called Rachel who I work with. Its glass beads on a 22 gauge wire bent to somewhat resemble a flower, with a little extra purple bead to cover some of the wire, all added to a chain.
The rest are all bracelets made from memory wire - so its already curly and fits pretty much all wrists! I just bend an end to stop all the beads sliding off - slide some beads on and bend the other end. done. :-)
I adore buttons and want to wear extra ones everyday (which I do through the power of home-made earrings!) and so there are buttons on the bracelets and a whole mixture of exciting beads.
