New Bracelet

I was looking around in one of my books and made a few earring pairs, then thinking about how I would connect them to make a bracelet.  I am going to make another one before I try to sell it.  I am not quite sure what to name them?  So if you have any ideas, please let me know.

 

  
And I also made this button band thinking of Gloria...

  
Enjoy!

Button Band

Last summer,  I met a woman, she makes yummy jams, and she enjoyed my flowers.  She didn't want them for her hair, she wanted to wear them as a bracelet.   So I thought about it, and made this....

  



a button band, I created it after seeing a similar bracelet on Ravelry.  I made one for myself and I enjoy wearing it, very sleek and stylish.  The width is perfect for adding on of my flower accessories.  I can add a flower and wear a corsage whenever.   I bought all these plastic rings for some reason, sometimes I use them to make earrings, and now I can use them to make button bands as well.

Here are a few more from my shop....

 


  
Enjoy!

Michigan

We had so much fun on our trip to Michigan. with Kevin's family.  When we all get together there are 20 of us, and we all stayed in one big house on a lake.  The weather was perfectly cool, and the sun did not set until 10:30, which Orla adapted to quite well.  She loved playing in the water, it did not matter if she had a suit, clothes or no clothes.    Simply wonderful.
