Beaded Bracelets

I bought some beads at the Melbourne Quilt Show, and I made some bracelets when I was in Melbourne. Then I went to Harmony Beads in North Balywn (opposite Coles on that scary corner with the trams and 5 roads all joining together), to match up smaller beads with the larger beads that I had bought!


These ones were done with a clover "knitting nancy"..I don't know the correct name for it. They were fun to make, and I have bought some more beading wire is different colours to try, and also some different clasps.

OOh, I love the textures and colours. I could easily be addicted to beads.

I went to Jeff's Shed one time (well, every year really,) and did a class on knitting bead bracelets. We did it on knitting needles. I have made about 7 of them and I have some wire all threaded up ready to go for some time.. :)

I recognise my addictive (to textiles) nature and have refused to allow myself to start making cards or scrapbooking. LOL!!

THanks for vising my blog. I found yours on my own, then Andrea listed you as one of her favourites.
