Silk Bracelets

So, how's 2011 going for everybody? Ok so far? I went back to school on Friday and had a beading class this morning so everything's getting back to normal...We took down the Christmas tree last night which is always a sad event. The spot where is stood looks so empty! Poor wee Maisie rabbit was bereft - she scampered around the place where the tree had been looking very puzzled. However, the festive period isn't totally over for me - tonight is our friends Andrew and Tom's Winter Wonderland Extravaganza! They have a big formal dinner for their close friends every year after Christmas and we all exchange presents, eat turkey and drink lots of pink fizz! I was poorly last year and missed out so I must say, I am really looking forward to tonight.

I've done loads of beading these past few days - a kind of last minute reaction against all my free time being eaten up as of Monday when I'm back to college and work full time! Here are some of this weeks results - all available in my Folksy shop. As you can see, I've completely fallen in love with the silk cord I've been using, from Sowzere Designs and I think it goes perfectly with Julie's Lush Lampwork beads, which I've used in the top two bracelets. Poisoned Apple features beads from Loupiac - they have a gorgeous silvery sheen to them. Let me know what you think! Hope you're all having a peaceful weekend.

Those bracelets are delightful! I love the color of the silk and the multitude of textures. Nice work. My husband is breaking down the tree right now (shhh... I'm supposed to be working).
Enjoy the day!
