For many years I’ve been getting together every Wednesday for beading with a couple of friends. My bead collection is overwhelming. So. many. beads. I can see them with my waking eyes…
In the spirit of the 365 project I’m trying to spend nothing on beading this year.
I found a package of child-size bracelet wire wrap (to make bracelets shaped like Slinkies, that you wrap on). I bought this by mistake years ago and never planned to use it. Plans change. I snipped a section of three or four full rounds and twisted a small loop on one end to keep the beads from falling off.
I have boxes (and boxes) of glass beads in random shapes, sizes and colours. I sorted by colour and strung the beads in a rainbow pattern, and attached a heart charm to the end loop. Cute, no?
And if one is cute, nine must be cuter.
I may have gotten a little carried away. I’m all out of wire now.
If I ever host a party for a bunch of preschool girls I’m prepared. We can play Oprah: You get a bracelet! Everybody gets a bracelet!
And a toque…
