Yesterday I was looking at the books page on my blog and realised I hadn’t updated it for ages. Why? Mainly because I forget to take the photos!! Memories! So I updated it to include a few of the latest books, and then having done that, I sat on the bed and had a browse – as you do! Bead and button…. set my mind going. It is a fascinating book. A book full of great eye candy!
A real ‘girlie’ book, with lots of different ways to make your own jewellery.
So throughout the day I gathered together ribbons, cords, buttons and beads, and last night sat down for a ‘girlie’ session of ribbon jewellery. (Mr A was at Hebrew!)
Don’t you just love the colours. They look like jelly beans! Anyway, this is what I came up with….
I quite like the construction process. It is very therapeutic threading and twisting and tying. I’m not completely happy with my ‘doing’ of the process. Perfectionism reigns I’m afraid!! So I shall only put a £1 per necklace for the Sun Shine stall. Overall they’re OK. Here they are with some I made before….
And some bracelets, some thrifted from my jewellery box, some made….
Bracelets 50p. We will see what happens. It is good to get the books off the shelves and rediscover them. Go on have a go. You never know what your next 20 minute session will produce!
