not just the little beads...

Okay, I admit it. I'm hooked. Totally addicted. Can't get away from it. Now I'm stretching out from tiny little seed beads on a loom, to large chunky bracelets. I can't seem to stop! (Except to knit - I am stopping to knit - the black cardigan is coming along nicely. One sleeve is done, and I love the cuff in alpaca. However, I'm thinking of adding beads to this sweater. Yeah, I will stop myself from doing that. Maybe.
But back to these bracelets. I fell in love with the beads - from heavy-ish glass ones to delicate shells, in all kinds of colours...

I seem to be especially enamoured of this fiery red one - the depth of colour is so pretty.Now to decide whether or not to sell them or keep them. There are a number of people at work that have shown an interest... I guess I can always reproduce them if I really want to keep them for myself.

Are you SURE we didn't commiserate on this?

I love the red one. And the rose pink. And the green. And... they are all lovely. Is the little silver part between the beads a little fitting or is it something you just swirl up?

Those are all just gorgeous - in the words of Arthur, "I am frightened by your excellence"...
