A new Bracelet

Late last week, I was lucky enough to get a spot in a beading class that was being held downtown. See, for the month of August, the classes were free, and the only fee was the beads and materials used. So I was pleased that I got a spot.

The instructions for this bracelet are in a beading magazine, but I'm not sure which one. Picking out the colors takes almost as long as making the bracelet itself.

Here's a closeup. I used brown daggers, amber crystals and cream seed beads. This was the first time I used a magnetic clasp. I was quite impressed at how strong it is. I'll certainly use them again.

I'm completely pleased with my project. Isn't it cute!
