Beading time

Cape polished stone finished bracelet2
Back in May, I used inks to color some oval bone beads that I had a strand of.  After getting the beads to a color I liked, I sprayed the beads with a gloss spray.  To read my original post click here polished stone beads
Since I finished the bone beads I just hadn't had time to sit and make them into a bracelet. While visiting my cousins I brought some beads and findings with me so I could finally make a bracelet with the beads and used copper for the clasp and spacers .

I also made some earrings to give as birthday and Christmas gifts. I beaded in the mornings.

I bought some more beads at the Bead Emporium on Main Street, Hyannis while I was on the Cape. So, as soon as I get them out...I will post more earrings. I bought the cutest little beads shaped like ice cream cones that I can't wait to put together. I will post them when they are finished. I can't believe how good it felt to sit and relax and be creative.
