Beautiful Birthday Beads


Seems I need to keep better track of our beading helper!  Yes, this is me explaining things to our young beader.  She wanted to make a bracelet for her mum's birthday.


She had laid out an arrangement last week which she tweaked a bit.  Then she strung them.  A slight glitch as 3 of the beads have been positioned wrongly as the hole does not run as placed.  We had to decrease the size so one was removed but she liked the placement as it was.  Beauty is in the eye of the beader!  :)  She is actually getting quite handy with the chain nose pliers as she places the finishing toggle on the bracelet.


We found a nice box that we made our own and she is quite happy with her present.  Another bead dazzling beading day!

Making her mum a beaded bracelet with your guidance is such a loving thing to do. The bracelet is beautiful. You two are quite the beading team. Happy beading...

I've never done any beading, so I didn't know about the ingenious little contraption to lay your pattern out on. I'm sure it's a very basic piece of equipment in any beaders arsenal, but I'm wowed!!! ;-)
