just playing with some of my beads...

Well, anyone who knows me .. knows I'm jewelry challenged! But I keep trying and working on that skill. I seem to have aquired enough elements to get a bit creative and when they are on sale I pick up a few things here and there. This bracelet was a challenge to me.. It took about 4 tries, but finally got it all together.. for me to wear... Below are a few close up views...
As far as beads being made right now? yes I have a few sets that need to be cleaned and pictures taken.. and posted.. trying to stock up.. for the holiday season coming up.. :-) Can't believe thanksgiving is next week.! have a wonderful week.. Diane

Beads of courage

Just a few pictures of the goodies heading to the Beads Of Courage program.. What it is this program? Well it is a program designed to support and help children coping with serious illness. The children use beads to tell their story, each bead has meaning to them and the milestones they have achieved in their journey of treatment. If you would like to read more about this wonderful program please check out their website here Beads Of Courage

Sorry for not the greatest pictures , I had already counted out and divided them up according to size and are all in their bags to be packaged up.....but it gives you an idea. Have a wonderful day.. Diane :-)
