Good morning and a Happy Father’s Day to all the dads in the UK.
Here I am again for the 3rd time this week – I am slowly sharing what I have been creating over the last couple of months. Today I thought I would show a few Hello Kitty bracelets.
This first one is gorgeous. I am so pleased with how it turned out. I had a few crystal hearts so I created a shamballa style bracelet for a child. I am tempted to make an adult version for myself!
This next 2 are just some little stretch bracelets with pearls and charm spacer beads finished with a sweet HK dangle charm …. cute!
Another shamballa style bracelet. I really love the crystal pave disco balls – they are super sparkly in reallife.
This bracelet was a commissioned order for a friends daughter who had just come home for the weekend. She loves everything Hello Kitty so this fit the bill perfectly.
Last but not least another stretch bracelet.These sparkle HK are so sweet. I still have more of them to use up so watch out for more ideas using them
If you would like to buy any of these just get in touch or visit my facebook crafting page.
Have a super Sunday whatever you are doing ….. xxx

Good evening, look at me back so soon! I just thought I would share another couple of leather wrap bracelets-I am totally addicted making these. I love them and think they are great for summer.
The first one is made using navy suede cord and embellished with purple and silver seed beads. This was a custom order for an old friend and I think the colours are gorgeous.
This next one is one that I made for myself. I bought some watermelon tourmaline beads a while ago and didn’t really know what I was going to do with them. Anyway, what a surprise they ended up as a wrap bracelet … this time with a beige suede cord …. pretty!!
Finally I am sharing a bracelet I have just finished this evening. Yes, another suede wrap bracelet but this time using some delicious beads I bought from Beads Direct in the sale ages ago. These are so pretty in real life – green stabilised tiger eye ….. wow!!!
I love how they all look different but are just different versions of each other. Pop over to Beads Direct if you fancy any of the materials used in these bracelets. They will all be there apart from the beads for the middle bracelet.
Right then, popping off for now but will try to post again before the end of the weekend x

Evening everyone …. oh my word it is 2 months since my last post. I really must apologise for that. I need to get a bit more organised that’s for sure. I am still making jewellery and most of it is on my crafting profile on Facebook.
Today I thought I would remind you about the jewellery challenge I run on Beading Friends Forever. It is a monthly challenge split into a theme and tutorial. There is also a prize from Beads Direct so check it out. Remember you can also join BFF on Facebook ….. see you there.
The theme is to create a piece of jewellery that is multistranded …. here is my set that I created ….
It is a really easy set to make – just beads and spacers but it looks pretty and memory wire bracelets are just so fun to wear.
For the tutorial we had a fabulous video showing how to create a leather wrap bracelet ….. I have made 2 so far and have lots of people asking me to make more of them.

I think that will do for today – will try and share a few more makes later this week xxx
