The Long Awaited Bracelet!!!

As I said in my post yesterday, I was going to a beading class. It was the first beading class I'd ever taken. Most of the time I can figure out the beading on my own but this bracelet really threw me for a loop and when I saw it at the beading store I was informed that there was a class coming up on it. Well, I was the first one to sign up!!! If you click on the photo you can see it closer.

So this is the bracelet I learned to make last night at the class. I made one in class but I didn't finish it and I took it apart because it is SO awful. The leaves are loose and very far apart. You can see a lot of thread but only at the beginning of it. Once I caught on the spaces tightened up and it started looking like it should!!! And that was all the practice I needed as you can see by the two I did last night after I got home from the class! I started another one after dinner tonight and it just needs the flower cluster and it's done. It's for me too!! The other two are already spoken for!! I'm going to use red for the flower cluster on mine. Well, a red/cranberry color. Ok, fine I'll show you when I'm all done with it. Maybe tomorrow depending on how much cleaning I get done in my workroom and laundry room tonight. We've got the plumber guy coming to put shutoff valves under the kitchen sink. Then cable is coming because they gave us a faulty box and now they have to come into my home just to tell me that. UGH. And it's in my workroom that they need to be in. Hopefully no where else. It's such a mess here. I have a HUGE counter top sitting on my living room floor. The new kitchen sink is in the den and the laundry room is full of dirty clothes waiting to be washed. Who wants to come help??? LOL Oh and on Monday the handyman will be here to remove the old counter top and sink and do who knows what. It's going to take him 3 or 4 days to finish the job. It's ok, that means I won't have dishes to do for 3 to 4 days or cooking either since the refrigerator and stove will have to be moved into the dining room to give them more room to work and maneuver that HUGE counter top. So there you have it, my chaotic life and messy house!! I wonder how I'll make coffee?? LOL WOW, if that were my only concern!!! LOL

Thanks for viewing my bracelets!!! I had fun at the class and a wonderful instructor!!

Beautiful bracelets Wanda. They look like they would be so hard to make but you seem to be whipping them out pretty good. You must have good eyes too. Looks like your working with very tiny beads. As for the mess...enjoy it. Because as soon as everything is put back together it will be cooking and washing for you again. LOL

I know I couldn't make one as my eyesight just isn't what it used to be! LOL

I took a beading class as well. I made a bracelet that looks like a bunch of butterflies. I love it! I don't like it as much as stamping/scrapbooking it takes too much concentration.
