Fun Stuff

My friend Jamie and I went to the local bead show a few weeks back.  We had a blast looking and oogling at all the pretties.  I ended up buying a good amount of beads.  The top bracelet is a triple strand of silver pyrite beads and a mix of stones.  I added some labradorite drops to add interest in the bracelet.  The second bracelet is also silver pyrite and just a mix of stones.  I like the simplicity of both.  The second bracelet was inspired by a bracelet I saw in the Sundance catalog.  It is my interpretation.

I was fortunate to be able to take a class this weekend to learn a new technique.  My class was on viking knit.  It was really fun and I love the look of the knitted piece.  The best part of the viking knit is pulling your piece through a draw plate and watching it get smaller and prettier.
