EXPERIMENTING!



I've been playing with beads!

What happens when you play with
a few beads, some 'very' fine
metallic yarn, and a very small
needle?

You get a knitted bracelet!




I started by stringing 200 or so
assorted beads onto the thread.
Then I knit adding beads throughout.



The experiment ...work in progress!



And this is one of the bracelet's. This one is now listed in my Etsy shop.



To top it off ...I'm packaging the bracelet in this beautiful vintage envelope box. I'm working on other bracelet designs so stay tuned.

Isn't it amazing what can happen when you put a few wonderful things together?

The bracelets are beautiful! And they look like it would take forever to make just one. Love the combination of materials.
