They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. For me, it’s having your son’s friends ask “Do you think your mom would make me a bracelet?” Uh SURE?! What better combination than being part of a design team for a bead company, loving to make things, and having a kid who likes to wear your stuff?
For these I used copper and antique gold metal beads from Blue Moon Beads. The colors are perfect for Fall.
Simple projects. Beads and stretchy cord.
I remembered that I had this little amulet in my BMB supplies and the antique gold went perfectly. Added it to one of the bracelets using a jump ring.
For the other bracelet, I used some leftover metal beads from my stash .
Now that Christmas is over, I can share a couple of projects that I made as gifts. This necklace was one of the December designs for the Blue Moon Beads design team.
I started with this mix of supplies including this mixed metal pendant. I took off the ends and used it sideways versus a dangling pendant.
I used a combination of gold chains and chain pieces and didn’t have any set design in mind but just kind of went with whatever seemed to make sense. I used some coordinating beads from a toffee themed mixture to balance it out.
Strung all of it together on a dark brown suede cord and added some coordinating beads from my stash.
