Trips to the bead shop...

... are always bad news for me!  I went for some bails I needed for my lace necklaces... but of course, I always get tempted by something that's NOT on my list!

So this post's offering is a twisted rope beaded bracelet.  It's late but I couldn't put it down once I'd started it and had to finish!

The colours are a bit less blue in real life, more greeny turquoise and sparkly!  But the bead mix was not quite right (they didn't have all the colours I really wanted) so this may have to be remade eventually.  Fun for a change though!

I also made yet another version of the necklace from the previous post in one of my favourite grey-blue shade, I'll show it to you in my next post.

Best wishes,


  1. Looks lovely, the trouble with photos the colours don't always seem to come out quite right.
    Looks a lovely colour.

  2. Oooh, I wish there was time to ask you to make a set for me in just those colours! - it would have been the perfect match for the outfit I am wearing to my son's wedding next weekend - just gorgeous!

    1. Oh, that would have been wonderful Maureen! I would have loved to make something for you for the wedding. Congratulations, and wishing you and your family a beautiful day next weekend.

  3. Gorgeous color combination! I am drawn to sparkles and beads, but I seldom use them. I guess I should be bold so that I can have some beautiful pieces like this!
