Sunday stuff...

So here are two bracelets I made the other day, since I had just enough beads to make the two. I wore one this morning to church; the other one is going to..........someone........who reads the blog....and deserves a little something special. I think she'll like it. I liked all the various shades of black and gray, and used small black glass spacers between the gemstones. Jasper I think. They weren't labeled, dang it. I don't like not knowing.

I needed some lobster clasps for some other bracelets I plan to make, and wound up going by the 'real' bead store. They had pearls for 75% off, so I got a stand to play with...soon. What a deal! I love pearls.

I am so ready to say goodbye to February. Come on spring! We are still windy and chilly here in WPB. isn't happening here! This has been a COLD winter and I want it GONE.

We aren't hockey fans, but we sure are rooting for Team USA to beat Canada. Our neighbors just cheered for the point made. Us or them will not like the outcome, but we'll all be good sports...and life will get back to normal tomorrow with no Olympics to watch.

So that's our day here in Paradise. Hope yours is a great one!

These are very pretty! Does the second one have a heart-shaped clasp? I'm sure the recipient will love having your "twin" bracelet. :)

Just lovely! I may try beading someday... when my cats are not all over me and my lamp!

Lap... not lamp. I really need to proof before publishing, don't I?

Love the bracelets - I love any jewelry with shades of black/charcoal and grays! Here in southeast Virginia - we too our praying for SPRING!!! What the heck - it's March already!!!

The bracelets are beautiful! Black & gray are good colors, too. I wore a gray bracelet that Melissa made for me, to my niece's wedding Friday night, with a silver/gray top. Good work!
