Posts Tagged ‘bracelets’

I miss my beads. So I decided to make beadwork my “car/vacation project”. I used to always use my own designs, but these days I lean toward making projects from magazines, which is what these bracelets are. The design and creation are simple, and I love how they look.

These bracelets were designed by Nancy Zellers, and were featured in an article in the June 2007 issue of Bead & Button magazine.

I made these while traveling to and vacationing in Beach Haven NJ last week. I plan on making two more bracelets – perhaps a little excessive, as I’m keeping them all for myself! But I really love these beautiful cube beads, and I’m enjoying making the bracelets. Plus we have two more car trips in August/September, and I need something to do on those long rides.

Do you have any projects you work on in the car or on vacation? I would love to hear about them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks to the Christmas spirits I did manage to finish the important things. 

Here are three bracelets that I made as gifts.  They are simple wirework bracelets, but the beautiful beads make them stand out.

This was for my sister-in-law.  I love these bracelets; they are from my June Second collection.  I really have to make one for myself.

This was for my sister.  Aren’t these beads gorgeous?  They make me think of the ocean.

And this was for my mom.  I made this to match a necklace that I made for her several years ago.

 

I also managed to finish the two gift boxes I had been working on.

I had intended to take a picture of all the gift boxes together once I packed the jewelry pieces inside and tied ribbon around the outside, but of course I forgot until Christmas Eve when I got home at 4pm, and by then I was far to tired to gather them all together. What a shame, because it would have been so pretty! oh well, maybe next year!

I am so exhausted from the holidays.  I have a lot more to write, but it will have to wait.  It is almost 11 now, and I’ve got to get to bed.  Good night!
