During my book signing at Ally Beads yesterday, one of their customers who is new to beading, mentioned a particular type of necklace she was going to make.
Once I had a chance to look at the beads that went into the necklace, I thought it would be fun to make it into a bracelet.
I wouldn't have guessed the meaning behind it if I hadn't been told and thought this might make a fun challenge here.
So, if you are the first person to identify the type of bracelet I was going for here, I will happily send you a random bead mix of miscellaneous pieces and parts that have been previously showcased on Abeadaday!
I'm working on sharing the bead love, while reducing the amount of space needed to house all my cool stuff! :) It's a win-win situation!
I can't wait to hear your thoughts! If you ALL "get it" I will think, gee I must have been living under a rock or in my very own bead-bubble again!
If you are the first to get it right, I will contact you through your blog, website or email address.
AND...it just wouldn't be Sunday without taking a few minutes to load up on inspiration from our fellow bead bloggers below:
