This bracelet was a surprise gift from a lady that buys beads from me.  I told her I was going to post on my blog because I thought it was really cool.  The best part, all you beaders, is this was totally unexpected.  As beaders we sometimes loose focus on the fact that beadwork is just plain beautiful.  If you, like me, read the bead magazines (a/k/a Beading Bibles), you sometimes feel your work doesn't match up.  They have amazing stuff in those magazines, but you put your heart into your work, so when you give it to someone that goes with it.  Over the holidays think about sending someone something you have made.  Better yet, do it before the holidays or after when it is least expected.   Beading is a beautiful way to say things what words don't.  I thank this woman again for her gift!!!


  1. I agree with you about the unexpected gifts. Its very pretty and I'll bet that bracelet is very special to you....just like the lady who made it for you

  2. Stretch Bracelets When your website or blog goes live for the first time, it is exciting. That is until you realize no one but you and your.
