Jewellery making



I've been under the weather for a few days & confined to bed. As with most crafters couldn't just lie there so got out my beading stuff & maanaged to make some bracelets & necklaces for pressies. The bracelets are knitted wire & the necklaces crocheted. Aren't they effective? My friends daughter showed me how to make the knitted bracelet & I found the crocheted necklace instructions on YouTube at Aunties Beads whilst amusing myself surfing the net.



And here are sneak peaks of a couple of other necklaces .............................. don't want to give the whole game away as they are for presents & people may peak! :-)



Using black wire ........................................



And silver wire & a mixture of chunkier beads for this one ....................

Love them Rachel, especially the bracelet.

Aw you needn't worry about showing my pressies - I'll still do the 'oohing' bit when I open it. ;))
