Cor blimey! Lots of bracelets

Post by Bead Queen - Carol on Fri 7 Dec 2012 - 9:55

i have been making some bracelets (with my mum) in the hope to raise some funds for christmas! Mum had lots of fun helping me make these, i was hoping to take her mind off worrying about dad.

I am selling them for 7 each instead of 10 just to earn some cash for pressies for the kids.



Then i made some more lol

No idea about the buttons Carol, but those bracelets are fabulous. Where did you get the pattern from?

Do they have to be flat, Carol, or can they have a rounded top?

Thank you all.

Lou - Here is the pattern http://thegossipinggoddess.blogspot.co.uk/p/tutorials.html i have contacted Lesley (the designer) and she is happy for people to sell the designs they make from her free pattern.

Awww thank you so much lynda. It doesn't matter if they are rounded topped or flat. Either is great. What can i send you in return? We can do a swapsie :) would you like one of the bracelets?

Tina - I have actually made a few with lampies as buttons! Thank you for offering. I like to collect orphan beads, and these bracelets are a great way to use them for that xxx

That's very sweet of you to offer, Carol, but I really don't want anything in return - other than for you to be able to use the buttons and sell lots of the bracelets!

Think I'm going to have to have a go at these: something to get the girls interested at Jewellery Group (or maybe Kathryn would like to teach it at one of our evenings). Better check if I've got the right cord first.
