Get Your Craft On Tuesday

Here are some of my latest creations:

Red Pretty Bird Bracelet
Hand painted glass bead
Vintage red ceramic & black seed beads
green glass seed beads
dark copper color wire
yellow color copper chain
lobster clasps
made in two pieces to mix & match with some of my other bracelet designs

Watch ring
Rose pink watch face
multi color crystal bead
deep red wire
yellow color copper chain

I think this one I will keep, but I'll make others. I also made a little fish ring, but I don't have pictures yet.

Lastly, I made a little hand embroidered drawstring bag, that I didn't take pictures of, before sending it off. It was kind of an experiment & I like the way it turned out, so I'll be making more. I embroidered little lavender flowers on the front (like the ones on this tiny framed embroidery), a simple black line all the way around the middle & hand sewed a little a hand embroidered tag on the back, then added a satin ribbon drawstring.

 So, that's what I've been doing, how about you? SAM

That bracelet is so beautiful! Very well done!

How long does it usually take you to make something like this?

Thank you!

The actual making of the bracelet doesn't take a lot of time, maybe a half an hour to an hour. The thought process or design is what takes more time. It's hard to estimate how much time, I usually do that while doing other things. I think better when I have some sort of background 'noise' going on.
