Another Jewellery Class and Card

Yesterday I dragged my sister to another local jewellery class
where we made the above bracelets - well, she didn't need
dragging this time as she actually enjoyed it last week.

This week's class was much easier as there was no sewing
of minute beads involved.
We used Tiger Tail and threaded on seed beads and larger
beads and evenutally came up with the entire bracelet!

Although I like making the jewellery I don't actually wear it
so my niece Chloe gets to keep mine.
Here she is modelling both bracelets.

She got her new nails last week - a special treat as she
wasn't old enough to join the jewellery class although she really wanted to!

Next week, my sister won't be able to join in the class either
as her children will be back to school and she lives too far
away :(  I have booked myself in, but not sure if I'll be able to
manage without my right arm girl - we'll see, if I'm brave enough!

Finally, a card I made yesterday - with the help of Chloe -
she's getting into this craft lark recently!

This is a Golden Wedding card.
The typewriter is Tim Holtz/Alterations/Sizzix Bigz Die
'Vintage Typewriter'
The backing paper is from a Laura Ashley collection.
Chloe added the gold accents in the lace which don't
show up very well in the photo, she also helped
choosing the papers and lace!
Thanks Chloe!!

..... and of course, if you're looking in
Thank You too x

The bracelets were so nice. You should start practicing jewellery while still young for you to improve your skills, you could have a jewelry shop and sell your own made jewelry in the future.
