After going to a Bead and Gem Expo recently, I found myself - once again - clutching a bag of bright and shiny seed beads. I can never help myself, I just get mesmerised by the colors and the shapes.

I love seed beads.....
So much so that I already have 3 tackle boxes - about 15 kilos - of the little buggers.

So, this time - instead of putting them neatly away and forgetting about them - I decided I would actually make something from them!
Seeing as I recently moved house, all my other glass equipment is still in boxes, I needed something to occupy my hands when I'm not busy painting or unpacking

Made from size 8 and size 6 seed beads and 0.7mm stretchy elastic. Each bracelet is 8 flowers spaced by 8 light green beads - approx 6" (15 cm) in circumference - but obviously being strung on elastic means that it should fit over almost all hands. Or feet.

Hope you like them!

At some point - when I've stopped compulsively making them - I will put them on Etsy and Ebay for sale.

How fun! I used to make these in like middle school! Memories, now I want to go buy some seed beads.

I know they're not very sophisticated, but they do make me happy AND give my hands something to be getting on with!

So sweet. I love beaded daisies.  Like you, if I am in a bead shop the magpie effect kicks in and I walk out with bags of  pretty shiny beads - and then have to make a plan of how to use them.  Lovely bracelets, thanks.
