It’s kind of nice to be getting back on my old schedule again, i.e. baseball travelling is over! If you’ve read some of my earlier posts, you may know that I work a 9X80 schedule (80 hours in 9 days) and get every other Friday off. Today was my first Friday off that I have been in town in a couple months. I try to spend my Fridays off doing what I want and not housework or laundry or anything like that. I’ve worked on a couple projects today - the big T-shirt quilt project I started some time ago and making my bracelet using the beads I bought in Wichita.
I bought these beads when I had some free time between baseball games in Wichita. Last night I looked through my spacers for some silver that would work with the beads and I strung everything on a piece of wire to see how it would look. I liked it just the way it was, so today all I had to do was find a clasp and put it all together.
I've been seeing more and more jewelry that uses a variety of beads or spacers and doesn't have everything match. I had a couple types of spacers of which I only had two left, so I decided to try using three types of silver beads. It was a great way to use up small quantities of beads and I liked the way it looked.
Here are a couple photos of my finished product. It’s really hard to get all the pretty colors in these beads to show up in a picture, but hopefully you can see just how pretty and colorful these beads are.
Coming soon, pictures of the beaded belt I made and an update on my T-shirt quilt.
