That is a great name for the collection of jewelry pieces I’ve been designing since last week. It all started with learning how to make the half square knot and creating some cool accent pieces for my beaded elastic bracelets….and now, I don’t know that it is an “obsession”, but as I am working a bracelet or anklet, I’m already thinking of the next one I can make!
There are so many inspirational photographs online and so many free tutorials it is easy to get swept away. Look how pretty this beginner anklet is I made for myself:
I haven’t taken it off since I finished making it and it’s holding up beautifully and wearing very comfortably! I just love it!
Once I broke out the seed beads….well….I’ve made two trips out for more colors of both seed beads and cording to work with; as well as buying a few things that will make working the bracelets up faster and easier.
This morning I am working on this pattern for bracelets and anklets…
The possibilities are endless for this pretty little piece. The picture shows Red Heart Thread in Aqua #10. The silver beads came in a multi-pack of beads I bought from Wal-Mart.
This is my favorite combination so far. I’m making a bracelet now, but I will be making an anklet size for these as well. When I have finished a few more of them, I will come back and share the free tutorials I used and a good list of supplies.
I’m going to get back to working on more pieces. I have plans to make these two patterns in particular and add them to my booth when I sign up for a few craft fairs this coming summer. Plus, I’m feeling crafty, so it is time to get back to it.
