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!

I mailed my bows – yay! I feel good about them. I hope the editors do too!

However I received my encouragement cards in the mail yesterday – they were declined. I was disappointed. I thought they were really good. oh well.

I’ve had a tray of half-finished jewelry projects sitting on my work table for a while. And by a while I mean at least a year. I was tired of looking at it. All those projects mocking me! So I went through them last Saturday and decided what I really wanted to finish. I decided to rework a couple projects because I don’t feel inspired by them anymore. But now I have a reduced pile of projects, and they are projects that I am excited to work on.

Thanks for stopping by!
