End of May Bracelets

Every now and then I try to make something of the beads, silver, stones, & any other table top left-overs I have. These two bracelets are just that - they are a mix-match of shapes, colors, bits and pieces . . . . and I LIKE them. Pieces like these are the most fun to build, trial and error, a culmination of 'gee, wonder what it'd look like with this in there' efforts. 'End of day' glass beads use up the left over bits of glass left on the table after a day of making beads. So these bracelets are "End of May" bracelets, 'cause it's what was left on my work table at the end of May.

Not Just Knots !

Price of silver chains, just like everything else, is skyrocketing! Sooooooo, here's a sampling of some efforts with knotting. I'm likin' the outcome and think I might venture into teaching some knot classes, whadaya' think? Altho these two knots are similar, they are tied differently to product two different looks, one just a little more detailed then the other. Have a preference? The more detailed knot at the top, or the little heart shaped (sort of) beneath it . . . send me an email & let me know what you think. I'm always up for constructive criticism and suggestions . . . . constructive or not !!
