Glass Bead Bracelets

This is what I have been fiddling with while I've been watching festive tele!
Bracelets Tree
I have made these bracelets to put away in case there are any craft fayres in the New Year that I am asked to have a stall at. This will be a new venture for me so I want to make sure I have a good stock.
Bracelets Close Up
The camera is merciless and I have just noticed a few ends that need trimming before I put them in display bags!

The beads are from assorted sets from Hobbycraft costing about £5 - 6 each  and are threaded on the transparent elastic thread.

The jewellery stand was a gift from my daughter from Convent Garden in September. If you Google "bird tree jewellery stand" in images it does come up, but I am afraid only in black, but I don't see why you couldn't  spray paint it, if you didn't fancy black.

Hi, I found your blog just before Christmas, you gave me a lot of inspiration and a good laugh at the way you look at life!
I love the name of your blog and I can relate to what you say and do.
Keep up the good work, I wish I lived near to you? Happy New Year, Love Lesley x

This has got to be one of the best Blogs that I have come across. Extremely interesting and has also given me a lot of inspiration. Please be assured that should I 'lift' one of your ideas I will always give you the credit for the original idea. I do not sell any cards or goods etc - they are purely for myself and family. Happy New Year to you and your family! x
