This is a procrastinated post of procrastinated Christmas presents. Most of my family received two boxes in the mail from me this year -- one of bought gifts (on time) and a second box with one or two handmade things. The handmade boxes were only sent a week or two ago, and I still have another one to go.

These sets were for my Aunt. She's the only person who asks for jewelry, so I usually only make jewelry when I make presents for her. Sadly, the box was badly crushed in the mail and arrived with its contents falling out. Apparently one set of earrings was missing and one of the bracelets was broken, so I'm glad I took pictures beforehand.

I'm very happy with how they came out. I haven't done off-loom bead weaving before, but it was a lot of fun and I love the results. The patterns are from the free section of http://bead-patterns.com/, and they were very easy to follow.









If any experienced beadweavers have some awesome tips to share, I'd love to hear them!

OOh, I so love them! I can't decide which is my fav. It's a shame it was badly treated by those mail people, probably jealous.
I remembered looking for the meaning of procrastinated, though i forgot, hehe. Guess i'm too lazy to check it out again

Well, I'm not an experienced beadweaver, so I can not give any tips...but I think they are lovely. I love the second bracelet & the colors are gorgeous!!

I'd also suggest that maybe your super awesome step-mother would like jewelry like that. I happen to know for a fact that she still wears the stuff you made her 2 Christmases ago....Just sayin'  Tongue
