Well I decided to take a break from fiber arts for a while and decided to go for some beading. I had a bracelet that I made myself when my son Vincent was born and wore 24/7 till it broke. Anyhow I was cleaning out and found that I still had the beads tucked away and went to work. Of course I had to go hunt for new beads since I wanted the look a little nice this time.
I got my inspiration from this site:
http://www.elisailana.com
And this is the bracelet that I was using for inspiration...



But seeing as I couldn't and wouldn't pay over $200 for a bracelet I went to work trying to recreate it.
I found a new bead shop in the process so that is always nice. The old place that I went to was like a closet, you couldn't see anything without asking and it was the size of my bedroom. The new place has a coloring table for the kids (big bonus) and everything is out so you can see it.

And here is the final version of what I made, at a mere fraction of the price (about $30).





I think I might try another with bigger name blocks if I can find them but for now i'm happy how it turned out.
