... I made this bracelet the other night inspired by the red, orange and yellow buoys on the beach.
Very easy to make if you have needle and thread, seed beads, chips of turquoise and a piece of shoe lace at hand. Just sew the seed beads on, one by one, centered onto the shoelace. When done, go through all the beads in the opposite direction to make sure they'll stay put. Secure with a firm knot and cut off excess thread. Make a slip knot at both ends and there you go: a bracelet - or anklet, if you like.
We're still waiting for the sun to come out here - the last couple of days felt as if autumn was very near (which it is, now that I think of it...)...Hope the bracelet will help to keep that summer feeling alive...
Wishing you a happy week!
