Beaded Bracelets and Giveaway Winner!

I have a plethora of necklaces. Seriously, you can see it here if you want to know just how bad it is! My bracelets are substantial as well, but I find they never last me as long. Most likely that is because I have a tendency to whack them against things or snag them at school.

Michaels has been having a great deal on Bead Gallery beads lately - 55% off! I figured that would be a great time to get back to making jewelry!

I love this one so much! It has three of those silver plated beads. It is not really glitter or stones, it is druzy! And I believe virtually indestructible! I tend to be vicious on the stones in my bracelets, unintentionally of course! I had four hearts and black beads left, so I think I may be making a pair of earrings soon!
I was afraid I wasn't going to like how this turned bracelet out, but I do! I had a purple glass bead with a golden tint in my hand all throughout the store. But something about it was not right. Then I saw these gorgeous beads - I love the swirls of blues and greens! I think it compliments the antiqued silver nicely.
Lastly we have my silver and rhinestone bracelet. I loved how the round beads look sand dollarish! It was definitely the easiest to make too, just six beads and some elastic. That is definitely how I like my jewelry making to be!
I am totally smitten with all of them and I think I may have a hard time choosing which one I will wear first! Perhaps I will go for a layered look this Monday!

Last but not least Congratulations to Maria! She is the winner of the Silent E Bunting Games! I will be emailing you tonight Maria!

Have a great night!


  1. Beautiful bracelets! I've been trying to find just the right bracelet for an outfit and can't find one...maybe I should just make one??!!

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! I say go for it, they are so easy to do, but be prepared to be totally overwhelmed by the bead choices! It always takes me at least 35 minutes to make my decision!

  2. Thanks you for the Silent E Bunting Games ~ they are amazing and just what my group needs now!

  3. Melissa, I love love love those blue and green beads! They look like tiny planet Earths! I've always wanted to try jewelry making; these are so beautiful! But I'm afraid that another obsession would mean even less sleep!
