Beads and more beads

I’ve had a bracelet and a pin that needed repair.  I was able to repair them last night, and while I was at it I decided to work or start work on a couple of beading projects.

I received a bracelet, handed down from one of my aunts the other day.  It was made of agate beads and small gold beads.  It had been stretched out over the years and needed to be restrung.  When I was in local craft store, I found swarvorzki crystal beads that I thought would look good with the agate beads.   I restrung the bracelet with crystal and agate beads alternating.  The original clasp was no longer functioning properly, so I added magnetic clasps.

I had a few beads left over and made this.  I haven’t decided if I will add it to my key chain or crochet a ribbon to it and use it as a book mark.

I have also had these purple beads for some time and bought the leaf pendant to go with them.  Needless to say the pendant and beads have sat in a container waiting for me to do something with them.  So I started on them last night.   I still have beads left and think I will have enough beads left over to make a matching bracelet.

That’s the beading side of my life.  I plan to try to finish up the necklace tomorrow and start on a small quilt.

Here’s wishing you a wonderful weekend!

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
