I am currently in hospital feeling rather sorry for myself. in order to pass some time I asked my husband to bring me in some of my beading supplies. I only have basic supplies so I have been doing strung things but I like how they have turned out so thought I would share.

First I made myself a simple bracelet:


When one of the other patients saw me playing she said how much she loved beaded bracelets and then jokingly asked me to make her one, so I did:


She was really pleased with it and asked what I wanted for it but I told her it was a present. She commented on how much she liked it and the fact it had red in as red is one of the colours she does not have a bracelet in, so as a surprise I made her another one which was all red:



Then I was fed up of simple stringing and wanted to try something new so I made this one it is strung on three wires, the big purple beads string all three and between them are three seed beads, one on each wire, I quite like the effect! The light is all out as photo was taken on my phone using flash:


Then today I spent most of my time making this necklace. I am slightly undecided about the purple seed beads, do people think it would look better in a green colour?


An awful photo of me wearing it so you can see how it hangs:


Thanks for looking all comments welcome, constructive criticism encouraged =)

Btw the wire findings on my earlier bracelets were the first I have ever created myself. They're far from perfect but I am quite proud of them!!

Love your jewelry, especially the red bracelet, but then I wear a lot of red.  Hope you get home soon and feel better.

First, I hope you're doing well healthwise & healing.
I'm so impressed you're up to crafting & it's sweet that you're bringing cheer to your roomie!

Love the bracelet with the 3 strands going through the big beads & then stringing multiple beads in between. It's so different!

I think the purple beads on the necklace may look better in green although I love your variety of different beads that you used & it looks pretty on you.  Smiley
