Pearl and Crystal Bangles

This was one of the classes I attended recently at bead camp.  Quite quick and easy to make.  So made an extra one in pink.  I actually found that I had already downloaded a similar pattern from Bead Infinitum, see link below.

Hugs and Kisses Bracelets

I am just lovin making these Hugs and Kisses Bracelets.

Do a google search and you will find lots of tutorials and intructions for them like this one:

or this one:

I use elastic thread so they are stretchy and easy to get on and off.  I like to use the thicker 1mm thread and this can be a problem as I make several passes through each bead.  I am always trying to find beads with a larger hole.  I have even resorted to asking my husband to drill out beads to give me more room for the elastic.

Anyway just wanted to share my creations. Thanks for looking.

Christmas Cards

North Pole Cards for Christmas

I have started on my Christmas Cards finally. I love the North Pole collection from Kaisercraft, so easy to work with, blues, aqua’s and teals and so very nice, reminds me of Christmas time in Canada with all the snow and cold, quite a bit different to our Christmas here in Australia…
Hope you enjoy my cards.
All supplies to make these cards can be purchased from Impressive Stamps Australia
