I've really gone bead crazy these days ... I've been making all those beaded jewelry and I don't know if I'll ever wear them all(well, I've made some things especially for my friends, but still...)
Anyway, here are some bracelets I recently made ... I've put them in chronological order - the blue braceler is the first one(for those ones) I made and the red one with the heart is the most recent.


On my hand :

I don't have the last one on my hand, because it's too tight for me to wear it ... I made it like that on purpose since I'm giving it as a gift to a friend of mine, whose wrist is narrower(?) than mine.

THIS is the one I'm talking about :


And this one I also made especially for a friend of mine ... for my best friend, actually. I'm almost certain she'll love it =))


Here is the tutorial for the closuer I've used on all 4 bracelets :

And the tutorial for the daisies : http://www.homestead.com/EagleSpiritUK/DaisyString.html

Well, what do you guys think ? Do you think they'll like them ?

Thank you all !! *bows*

Rebeccalynnis, I can't wait to see your result =D Good luck Wink

beadizzygrl, you're welcome ... before I found this tutorial, I had found another one for making daisies and it was really confusing ... so many strings on one picture ... I couldn't understand a thing !! But this one is very simple and easy to understand and the result is amazing, isn't it ?

RoxNGemz, thanks =)) It's the only closure I've used ever since I started beading ... plus, I have NO IDEA where can I find any type of closures in my town =/ Also, my friend's skin is really sensitive and irritates from metal stuff, so I can't use any other type of closures, because they're all metal-y >.<
