Yesterday Karen came over in the morning to do some bracelet making (hence my desire to find beads on Wednesday!) Andy gave me some jewellery making stuff and beads at Christmas which I love but really I’ve only made earrings and have not been very confident. But yesterday I made my first bracelet:
And modelled on my very own wrist:
Nothing spectacular but it was my first bracelet and I’m pleased with it! Made with memory wire.
It was a really enjoyable morning actually. I wasn’t aware of feeling tired at all and we just nattered away while threading our beads. I think doing crafts is a great way of socialising and of getting to know people better. It’s very unpressurised as you are focusing on making something – and the conversation ebbs and flows naturally.
