Clustered Bracelet using gemstone chips
Mary Q Bracelet
You could say I have been buying some gemstones!!
Oh dear, spending money and at Christmas time too!!
I just cant believe that its only a week away now. I am not READY at all!!!! Up until today I had one present, YES just the one! But I did go off shopping for a few hours and came back with a few more purchases, so I am a little happier. I did do a bit of Amazon shopping too. So feeling a bit better now.
All I need now is a christmas tree and some deccies up. I'm afraid my hubbie is laid-up with his back which gave out on him again on Tuesday, he staggered in from work about half an hour after he left ~~ poor old boy!!! So hence no deccies up yet, I just don't do ~ going into the loft, ladders and me just don't get on!!
I liked this technique which I picked up along the way, so I have run with it a little and found out I enjoyed doing this, its very simple and when hung onto tigertail (beading wire) they look great. The clustered technique could be making an appearance in the shape of a workshop as my Bead Group have requested one so more will be on the way!!
Finally I thought I would mention that my lastest tutorial has made its appearance in Bead magazine (current issue) Dec/Jan issue 35. I am so pleased with it and I've had some lovely comments. Mum also knicked it to go with her new christmas outfit and seems to have kept it, no not really I did say she could have it if she wanted it.
Here it is
Wrapped in Chains
Well thats about it for now, I will try and get some more photos done of the things I have just finished before christmas arrives. If not I want to wish you all
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
A HAPPY NEW YEAR
Lets hope it is a better year than this one!! I think you might know what I mean!!!
Love to you all in Blogland!!
