A New Hobby?

With many limitations on using a rotary cutter, and doing any quilting, I thought I would try a little project that's been on my mind.

Last year I bought beads and made some decorated pins.


I ended up having quite an assortment of beads left over.  I've wanted to try my hand at making a little bit of jewelery.  So I bought the stretchy string and gave it a go.

I don't think I will be opening an etsy shop anytime soon :-) but it was fun to use my hands putting these bracelets together.  I even tried to incorporate a charm that was given to me recently.

I hope you are having a Happy Quilting day!

I LOVE them! I've been wanting to do that too. Of course, I want to do everything, therefore I get nothing done! lol I'm too busy dreaming. Hope you are doing better and better.

I big heart love those pins! I've got beads! I just need the longer pins! And maybe some glue... What a cute idea!

I bought several boxes of beads a while back. They are to decorate the donuts I crocheted. Must get back to them. it's such fun to add all that glitter.

Very cute! I'm also having trouble trying to cut and need to find other things to do as well.

Did you do a post/tut on making decorated pins? I'd really love to learn how it's done. Do you know of a good resource for learning the basics?

thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your experience with your hand therapist. We take our functionality for granted don t we? And rotary cutting is particularly difficult. I pray for your swelling to reduce and a full recovery. Happy to chat therapy any time.
