As a holiday celebration this weekend I thought I'd treat my friends to some semi-precious stones and sterling silver findings for bracelets. I showed them how to do wire wrapping, crimping, jump ring manipulation etc. Everybody made such beautiful things, I loved all the colour combos so much.  

Here's mine, I like to include a skull in some of my work as a visual cue to live each day with consciousness and appreciation. For me, it's a symbol with positive connotations that usually makes me stop and think about where I am emotionally. It's a good reminder.


One friend went with this earthy, woodland theme and also included a skull bead.


This cheerful one is for a young daughter who likes bright colours and repeating patterns. The letters are her initials, I think she is going to really like it.


I always like a rainbow and this is lovely with the regularly spaced charms.


Here they are together so you can see how differently they all turned out.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

It's so neat to see how everyone comes up with something of their own!

That is my favourite part of these sessions, same material for all but not one project like the next. It is so inspiring, I think it's the most fun I have all week.

It was so fun, a friend came back to make more bracelets today! Another one for herself & one for her adorable daughter.
The light wasn't great so these shades are a bit off but in real life the colour combos are so great.

I will have to come over from Belgium and stay with you for a while, with all of these crafty visitors coming by!
Of course I would bring lots of crafting materials.
