Beads and barrettes
With all my Valentine’s Day gifts safely in the mail (and the recipient safely in Hawaii), I can finally post some of the things I’ve been working on.
I made this necklace that will be perfect for my friend Shannon who wears bigger jewelry than I do. I’m excited to have another five strands of those seed beads to play with on a future project.
Just to be sure it was “sturdy”, I wore it for a full day. It had nothing to do with the fact I ended up really liking it and wanting to keep it. (Lauren took all pics while at the office).
And then, I made these way great barrettes. I got the idea for the clips from A Hoot and a Holler. It suggests using a felt ball in the middle, but I don’t have a glue gun, so instead I used some beads in the middle.
When I wore this with my red and green vest, people asked me if I was a month late for Christmas. I will have to choose my wardrobe better next time.
And here’s one just for fun.
