happy flower knotted bracelet

So I got my copy of Stephanie’s new book yesterday. I’ve only glanced at the pictures which are very nice. If you are interested in making spiny knotted bracelets and you have not had the chance to take her class now you can buy her book. It is a fun bracelet to make… Maybe I need to make some more, although I of course have my own twist on her great technique. Anyway, I’m going to try to have some fun flowers on Tuesday in case you want to give it a try. 🙂

Year of Jewelry – Knotted Bracelet

I finally figured out how to make them adjustable! Woohoo! This isn’t exactly the Spiny Knotted design, a little variation that works better for me and I figured out how to add my own soldered finding which allows it to be adjustable. I think I should make more because it is a very fun style to wear! 😀

Spiny knotted Bracelet

Just wanted to pop back in and share the bracelet that I made in my class yesterday. 😀 It was lots of fun! I’ll be back tomorrow morning with beads!! Check back if you have a minute.

Blue Necklace

Here are the promised photos of my woven necklace. It is definately a piece that makes a statement! 😀 Now I think that I need to make some bracelets… and I have a few other ideas bouncing around in my ol’ noggin… So we’ll just see what happens. This technique is one I found in an old magazine and I like how flexible it is. Anyway, I really LOVE making the pendants too. Everytime I get that glass shank to work it just makes me so happy!! I have about five of them just sitting here on my desk… heehee… I’ve just been having fun playing and seeing what happens. Oh yeah, I made some cool glass circles, like the big holed beads but with no mandrel, hence no yucky bead release edge. They are fun, fun, fun! Forgot to photograph those! Guess you’d better stop back tomorrow to peek at them… heehee…. Enjoy your evening! Oh yeah… don’t forget… just click the photos for a bigger peek!
