More Jewellery Makes

At this week's jewellery class we made a different take
on the ever popular Shamballa style bracelet.

It basically consists of 8 large beads simply threaded on the cord
(without knots inbetween) and three clusters of five smaller
beads - each had a headpin inserted into and made into a
jump ring - this was then threaded onto the cord.
The remainder of the bracelet was the usual D knots.

I think this is my favourite so far and one I will wear 
as it isn't too fussy.

So, what did I buy after the class?

Some cord and disco ball beads.
Some lovely glass faceted beads
and cream coloured skull beads -
well, it would have been rude not to!

I couldn't resist making some more skeletons!

Poor Mr Orange Skeleton though, I inadvertently
cut off his left arm with the thread zapper!
I had to re-join it with a knot so he's a little
distorted - he looks cheerful enough though!

I think they're so funny!

Thanks for looking :)

Occupational hazard for a skeleton :-)You'll have to get a halloween tree to hang them from.

I think your orange skeleton is just too cute with his wonky arm...we all have our imperfections in life. :o)
