So, at the risk of boring you all to death, I'm posting another picture of a bracelet. Practicing beading can lead to one of two things...either something that works in jewelry or something that doesn't. This most recent piece was supposed to be a wide cuff, but I made it too wide and it was uncomfortable on my wrist. So I sewed the edges together and made it into a tube and it still works as a bracelet.
As you can see, it looks different on a dark background,
so perhaps a navy blouse or the ever present black top will work with it.
While going through my stash of beads last week I came across this owl pendant. I got this in a grab bag of broken jewelry at a flea market and it just so happens that I have a friend that collects all things owl.
Yes, this little pendant is going to my friend and trainer, Chelsea. Sweet little Chelsea was recently diagnosed with cancer and after trying various treatments over the past few months, her doctors told her yesterday that she will have to start undergoing radiation. Hopefully a little vintage owl pendant will help keep her mind off of things a bit.
Well, that's it for today. Hope everyone is hanging in there and getting ready for Fall. I'm not sure what is on my agenda for today. I deconstructed the shawl that I showed you last post and I'm thinking about making granny squares with the yarn. I found a pattern for a granny square sweater that looks promising. I'll keep you posted.
See you soon. Let us hear!
