Hugs & Kisses

Saturday, 23 February 2013
I hope you're all keeping snug and warm wherever you are! It's been so cold here with snow showers on and off.  Luckily it's not settling and turns to sleet each time.

Whilst re-finding my enjoyment in crafting, I have also been introduced to beading which I am enjoying. The lovely Marcea is to blame and she has set up a brilliant challenge blog for those who enjoy beading and jewellery making called Beading Friends Forever.

Each month there will be two challenges; one a theme and the other a tutorial to follow. This month the theme is Anything Goes and the Tutorial is a gorgeous Hugs & Kisses bracelet. As my title suggests, I've had a go at the tutorial.  I'm pleased with how this came out, apart from the fact I've realised I messed up at the very beginning.  My the time I realised, I was too far in and I did not wish to unstitch it all! 

I didn't realise how small these photos were until I posted them!  I've used acrylic beads and seed beads from Bead Direct, who are sponsoring the challenge. The toggle clasp is from Hobbycraft.

Here's a close up of the bracelet.  I will definitely be attempting this again using some different colours.

Thank you for all your comments on my card yesterday.  I will be visiting you all again shortly.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you are doing.
