Something new

I was convinced I’d be crafting 24/7 after finishing university but in reality that not been the case, I’ve done a lot of nothing really, lazing around watching TV just because I can! No more deadlines or work to get on with in an evening.

I did however notice my box of beads sat on my craft shelf and remembered  jewelery making has been on my ‘to try’ list for a few years at least! So, I’ve had a go and made a bracelet, I’m pleased with it, a little bit bigger than I would like, but an ok first attempt!

It turns out to be quite fiddly business these clamps and fastenings!

But also quite relaxing doing the actual bead threading part.

Finished bracelet, maybe 2 beads too big (lesson learnt on measuring and how much to allow for the clasp!).

I think I need a matching necklace now.

As for Sunday Sevens, I missed a few weeks while on holiday, but plan to resume again soon!
