Guest Crafter–The Equally Lovely Denise And Her Wedding Bracelets

Wedding preparations still continue to gather pace and after consultation with the Bride, the Lovely Laura,  Denise (Laura’s mum) and I said that “we” would make some glass beaded bracelets for wedding favours for the ladies …..
Picture92……  say “we” loosely as it was Laura's mum who did all the hard work stringing all the beads, which we had both collected over the years, I just admired her handy work!!I admit to keeping this one aside for myself ….just look at those cute bugs!  It’s in a child’s size at the moment  but I aim to make it a bit bigger for me using a few extra beads.
Denise managed to use a lot of the lampwork beads I got from WholePort in the bracelets ……
…. and seeing how beautifully they have come out I am glad I kept one string back to use with the other beads that were left over, as I have been inspired to make a few for myself to wear in the coming spring/summer months when I just want to surround myself with colour after this prolonged dull winter…..
The next thing for the “Crafty Wedding Crafters” to work out is what to put each bracelet in ….. I have an idea …. which will probably mean getting my dusty and very under used Silhouette machine out of retirement!

Objects Of GREAT Desire

I love this furniture and accessories from a German company called Kare Design, I just love the colours, patterns and the quirkiness …..

….. which has inspired me to eventually revamp the rather “past the sell by date” furniture etc. in my craft room  in a similar way,  only using Decopatch papers …….

I don’t have a clue how much any of this stuff costs …. but I reckon I couldn’t even afford a tea towel from their range, but it’s lovely to just look and dream!
