Something a Little Different...

Good evening everyone...

I know I've been missing for a few days but I've been making something for Leonie's 18th birthday which I can't show you just yet. Her birthday is not until the end of March, but she follows my blog so I can't post it yet.

Tonight I've got something a little different to show you.
It's a Shamballa bracelet.

I really enjoyed making this and it didn't take too long to make either.
The picture really doesn't do it justice. I really must learn how to take better photos. I have a lightbox and daylight bulbs, but they still don't turn out right!

Leonie has already asked for a purple one and I'm going to make a turquoise one for her to give to a friend for her 18th. Hopefully it's something she will keep that will remind her of Leonie in years to come.

The beads were all bought from Beads Direct.  They have a great video to follow on how to make it. Youtube is just fantastic for learning things! My attention was first drawn to this site by Marcea Watkins who has made some lovely jewellery which she has posted on her blog. She has just started a monthly jewellery blog challenge called Beading Friends Forever. Pop on over, but beware you may become hooked on a 2nd hobby!!!

Not sure that I'll manage much crafting this weekend. Brandon has Yorkshire Swimming Championships again this weekend. I'm taking him tomorrow and a friend is taking him on Sunday. Unfortunately Sunday will be spent ironing. 

Hope you have a great weekend and manage to sneak in some crafting.

Thank you so much for taking the time to pop by and I really appreciate any comments which you leave. I love to read them.

Happy Crafting,
Hugs, Janine xx
