This week's project incorporates several of the shell pearls and the ELECTRIC SPARKLY beads I received in a surprise bead package from Rings & Things last weekend.
As I mentioned earlier in the week, I received these beads as part of the Rings & Things blog partner program.
I was gathering materials earlier today so I could sit down to create something and discovered this PVC bracelet band that I found in the bargain bin and blogged about last summer.
I was thinking it would be fun to wire some of these beads to the band in a random design. Not surprisingly, my random idea flew out the window for a more structured design.
I think the flower-like form is pretty cute and after wearing it all day, I have pretty much formed a loving bond with it. :)
I caught a glimpse of it on my wrist in the hall mirror a few times today and it makes me smile. As always, that equals success in my book!!
I have also posted a picture of the earrings I made for a coworker to accompany a bracelet she asked me to fix that she had bought on vacation.
I stole a couple of the triangular shell beads from her bracelet so she would have earrings too and it just so happened I had received these special beads in the mail!
The sparkle on these electric beads is really amazing. My coworker wore them all day on Monday and every time I saw her, I saw the sparkle! It was great! I even heard her get some unsolicited comments about them!
I hope everyone is getting in a little bit of fun and crafting this weekend! The snow is falling AGAIN pretty steadily right now... One day soon I NEED TO SEE GREEN!
