Something was missing. I wanted something lovely and wonderful in my day. So I went to my stash and pulled out some beads that I had previously purchased. They glistened in the sunlight. They filled me with whimsy.
I took a few beads, strung them on a t-pin, and then bent the top into loops until I had a bunch of dangles. Then I added two or sometimes three onto a chain link.
I finished up and added a few matching dangles for earrings.
And I have a finished bracelet. I’m thinking of turning it into a necklace instead because the sparkles and chiming get a bit distracting on my wrist, but it’s still a wonderful thing of joy. 🙂
Do you do jewelry at all? Do you have any pictures to show?
Great job! Here is a post about a friend of mine who rescues broken jewelry and remakes new pieces. She then sells the jewelry for charity, our church choir! https://sanseilife.wordpress.com/2014/09/22/jennifer-lim-at-arts-crafts-showcase-10-19-2014-rescued-broken-jewelry/
Oh, what a wonderful idea! I love that she does that. And the turtle bead is so cute!
I do jewelry too. I haven’t in a while, but I’d love to start making earrings on a regular basis.
Sara! We’re so meant to be friends! 😀
