^ooo Tracy, your stuff is beautiful! I tried my hand at jewelry making once, but I wasn't so great at it. Then again, I just don't think I had the right materials. This will sound lame, but how do you attach the pieces on the end that hook the bracelets together? What materials do you use? I have lots of beads still and would love to make some more, but I guess I just need step by step instructions?
Those are pretty Tracy. That is the kind of thing that I make. I like using the stretchy cord as well.
jeh3v ~ You need to get crimp beads to put on there. They are tiny little beads (you can find them at any craft store in the jewelry section) that go on the beading wire. You thread the wire through it, through the clasp, and then back through the bead. Then you crimp it with a pair of crimping pliers, or regular ones would probably work too. Hope this helped you out.
Sweetwon I love these! Very unique, did you just twist the wire yourself or did you use some sort of shaper?
Tracy your bracelets are so pretty! I love the use of all the different shaped beads!
I, too, make beaded jewelry. My friend Jules had gorgeous earrings in one day and I asked her where she got them and she said she made them and I was like WOAH! Haha, so I was bound and determined to learn to make jewelry last summer and I did... spent a fortune too getting all the supplies ! Now I have oodles of beads and no time to make anything! I will try to find some pics but I won't have anything new for quite a while. The one thing I keep trying to get better at is watches; my mom loves unique watches and I try to make her a few per year! Otherwise, I make necklaces, earrings and bracelets/anklets like most people!
