Something New

I hope everyone had a great and safe St Patty's Day.

I have ventured into something that I did not think I would ever do. Non hemp bracelets. When I made my last bead order, I also ordered some stones and beads that might be to small for hemp. I got them because they were a really good price. A price that I could not give up, haha. That's my problem with sales, but I'll save that for another blog.

When I received my order, yup, some of the stones and beads had small holes that hemp would not just fit through. So I went an bought some beading wire.

It took me a couple of tries to get it right, but I ended up with these three bracelets. P1010060

My mom, who is still visiting, liked the top left bracelet so she is keeping that one. I liked the black bracelet, the top right one, so I am keeping that one. The rainbow bracelet is one I made with some left over Czech glass beads.

Once I made these, I kind of liked it and started making some more. I ended up making 5 more bracelets. Here are some pics. The last picture has the rainbow bracelet included.

p1010061P1010053 I think they came out ok. I don’t know yet if I will list them in my Etsy Shop.

I will however be listing more hemp bracelets soon, so be on the lookout for new hemp bracelets!!!

Hope everyone is having a great day!!!!!
