Adventures in Beading

I made my first jewelry beading project! 

I made a lariat style necklace and matching earrings for my mom because she helps me out so very much at home!

It came out nice, I think... I should really take a picture of it! 

I also made my daughter a bracelet, which she will thrilled about receiving when she gets home from school! 

I thought it would be too hard for my to do with my hands, but it turns out that it is good exercise and not as hard as I thought it would be at all!  The key seems to be having the right tools, too.

I am excited about this new hobby and where it may lead!

Just wanted to share a quick one with you all today! 

I hope everyone in J-Land is having a great day, like I am today!

Be well,
Dawn

Wow.  How do you get your hands to handle the beads?  After a while my hands turn to mush.  I tried to curl my hair since it is growing every which a way except for a style.  It didn't turn out to well.  It ended up with me sitting on the floor crying and in pain.  I am glad that you found a hobby.  That would be nice if I had one.  I think other than my critters I don't have a hobby.  I use to do a lot of puzzles again though my hands are mush.  I will have to look into that.  The only thing that I do lately is what I am suppose to do.  Thanks for reminding me that I am a part of the human race.  Even though I am not feeling it today.

My goodness you've been busy!  Do take some pictures - I love beaded jewelry.  I've made a few things, but only as part of a class.  Haven't tried anything on my own... without an instructor.
