Day 239 – Grandma style

by Shannon

Today, I made a bracelet out of cream wood beads and pewter glass beads. It reminds me sooo much of my Grandma Downs, I have to guess she had one just like it when I was a kid. Anyway, after the drive home and subsequent cleaning if the car… you’ll have to use your imagination! I’ll be sure to post a pic as soon as I locate it!

Days 237 & 238

by Shannon

When u packed for our mini vacation, I grabbed a bowl of leftover bead off the table as I rushed out the door. As it turns out, there was beads, some stringing materials and not much else in the bowl. Yesterday, I made another howlite skull bracelet.
Today, I made a couple of bracelets with howlite peace signs. Now that my phone has charged sufficiently, I can catch up again!

Day 236 – more of Bella’s baubles

by Shannon

My B has been asking for post earrings amid her other requests. Her ears homes are still fairly new, so weight is always a concern. The last time I ordered supplies, she picked out the sterling findings in a few options. I thought something to match her Halloween stuff would be fun.
Her response…”so now I’m a Vikings fan?!?”

This little guy is under 2 inches tall. Made from random beads, it packs a fun pop of color!

Day 234 – Bug’s bracelet

by Shannon

B has been getting so much lately. I decided that my Bug needs some bling too. This little bracelet is a modified rainbow made from Swarovski crystals.

Day 232 & 233 – in chaos

by Shannon

Chaos is a way of life for some people. Just sayin’…
Last night, the kids were so wired I gave up and snuggled them to sleep. Unfortunately, that means no post yesterday. I made a necklace for myself using some of the fantastic beads from Black Dragon! Annie makes the best pewter Celtic knot pieces. Today, I made the fall colors earrings that my sister Heather requested.
