Pictured below are 3 of the 4 bracelets I made this past week. The forth one, I had to take apart even after I was about to put the end caps on ! I found a missed bead and I actually KNEW it when it happened but thought no, it just looks loose so I'll tighten it up. Yeah, right. lol ! These are the 3 that did make it. :) So happy with all 3. The red and black one is now in my Etsy shop & the other two will be there sometime over the weekend I think. I had a lot of fun picking colors to work with. The silver and gunmetal together is also in a necklace I made also in my Etsy shop. Beaded Kumihimo is so much fun to do ! I'll ALWAYS enjoy making these little gems.
I used the magnetic clasps on all 3 bracelets simply because they make it soooo much easier to get the bracelet on and off. They might not look as pretty as some of the other clasps but hey, in my opinion, what's easy is best ! lol ! Especially as we get older right ? Yep. :)
The second part of my week began when my brand new BEADING LOOM (pictured below) was delivered ! :)) I FINALLY picked one out and ordered it. It arrived Wednesday and I've been "playing" ever since. Since I feel I need to devote a whole post about this loom and what I've done on it, I'll just show the photo's below and in the next post, I'll get into lots of detail. You won't be sorry if you come back next week to check it out. Lots to tell and I've only been working on in for a day and a half at this point ! lol !
So, has my muse re-emerged - I think in a way it has. Not for melting glass, it's too hot anyway to be at that torch right now. :( But for other fun stuff - yep, it's here and I'm glad. :) I really needed a distraction this past week.
Since I have a very early appt. this morning I gotta go for now. Thanks so much for coming by ! I hope you come back again soon.
