More last minute Presents

Hi Peeps, no card for me today, hoped to have lots of time yesterday for card making, but as normal well laid plans have a habit of being upset, didn’t even get to my craft room to quite late.  I needed to make some extra little Christmas presents for table and tree gifts so I spent a few hours last night practising a new craft that I fell in love with at this years Craftaganza BEADING and Shambala Jewellery.


I ended up making 5 bracelets, a know it sounds a lot but one you have grasped how to make the square knot the Shambala bracelets take about half an hour each to make.  I bought the beads for the Shambalas from Beaders Companion.


These bracelets are not cheap but look stunning and can become a little addicitive to make


The Beaded bracelet was much harder and I still have still got lots to learn but am quite pleased with my first 2 attempts, think I have to work a little on my tension, adding thread and finishing off.  Sure I will get there in the end.  I used Black and Crystal size 10 seed beads with a couple of 6mm beads for the fastening.  The beads came from The Spellbound Bead Company.

Looking forward to taking Grandson Robert to Rye today we will be meeting up with my other Grandson Owen, I am sure I will have a great day.

Have a good day,
