I've been refreshing my jewelry-making skills. Here's my most recent creation (last night, ha!) all curled up resting while the glue is drying. Speaking of, the close-up helps me see a glob there to scrape off!
I was inspired by a tutorial I spotted on Pinterest. I didn't quite have the materials on hand to follow the tutorial to the letter, so I adapted it to make use of what I have, but I'm pretty happy with the result. It's a double-wrap bracelet. I was going for a necklace, but it turned out a wee too small for that. Measure twice, cut once, whoops!
I plan to actually follow the tutorial to the letter one day though, and when I do I'll link to it.
So basically the bracelet is made from braids of embroidery floss, plus some beaded yarn, and a length of chain. I had thought about adding some dangling beads, but I think this bracelet has enough going on already. Oh yeah, plus I threaded some hardware along the floss to punk it up a little.
And here's a sneak peek of a sewing project I finally finished today. It had sat nearly finished for several weeks. I just didn't have the time to get to it before that! And who knows when I'll get photos with a model...so for now, feast your eyes on another close-up:
And I hope you're all ready for the week ahead!
