Tiny Treasure bracelet pattern review

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a lovely weekend. The weather is so changeable that I decided to stay in today and make myself a bracelet. It is my friend's wedding next weekend so I have a good excuse to make something just for me.

I had a look around online for a pattern that I liked and I found this pretty bracelet called Tiny treasure. The pattern is by BeeJang and you can find the link here.

I found the pattern very easy to follow. The instruction were clear and there are also lots of pictures to also help. I thought I would try some monofilament instead of my usual Fireline and I have to say I quite like it. i will need to wear my bracelet all night first before I decide to use it again but it seems very strong but also flexible. 

The beads I used are 6x8 crystal, 4mm bicones, 6mm Swarovski pearls and 11/0 seed beads. I used a toggle clasp in bronze which goes really nicely with the beads.

I decided to make a little video showing how the light captures the beads. I think in future I will always do a video but will probably plan it a bit better. This was all very impulsive and not really planned at all lol. Anyway, have a look and see how lovely it looks compared to the still photo.

I hope you found this useful. See you again soon xxx

Perfect for bridesmaids

Happy Monday everyone. I have been a bit quiet this week but I have been hard at work and then it was my friends hen party at the weekend. I needed a lazy day yesterday to recover lol.

I am still making another friends invitations for her wedding and so that is taking up a bit of my time. They should be finished tomorrow or Wednesday hopefully and then I can start making my jewellery again.

Here is a little bracelet I have made for a friend of mine to give to one of her friends. I think these are perfect for bridesmaids as they are simple, pretty and can be made in any colour.

I am off to get ready for my appointment at the doctors - it is time for me to have my holiday vaccinations - only 3 weeks until we go to Turkey - I can't wait!

Have a great day everyone, I will try and post tomorrow too xxx

Poncho set

Good morning everyone. What a busy week for me this week, 45 hours to work - only 6 left to do this afternoon thank goodness. Needless to say not much crafting has been done.

I am busy making wedding invitations for one of my colleagues though and i will share photos of them when she says I can lol.

In the meantime here is a photo my sister sent me of my little niece yesterday. She is wearing a cute crochet poncho and hat set that I made for her.

Hopefully I will have some new makes to share with you really soon
