Being creative...

Here is a very simple bracelet I made using glass beads I bought in Rome. The colors are black and azure blue. Very soft muted colors and they really shine in the glass beads. This feels super comfortable around my wrist as I try it on for sizing.
I love the magnetic clasp as it makes for extremely easy fastening and unfastening without help from another source or person. "I can do it myself" comes to mind.
Having a lovely Saturday with perfect weather even though it is slightly breezy, however, that keeps the temperatures down to pleasant.
I spent most of the morning outside pulling weeds and doing detail clean up in one small area of our yard. I seem to be doing days of this same routine. I must admit it feels so good to see it when it is done. If only it would last.
After a shower and fresh clothes it was into my studio to focus and create. That is how I came to make this lovely bracelet. I also finished some other items that I shall post another day.
Enjoy your day and this weekend as some of you observe Father's Day.
How do you like to celebrate Father's Day?
Since my father, my father-in-law, my uncle and virtually everyone is gone I like to honor my husband and make certain he knows how much I truly appreciate him.
Happy creating...


  1. I love your bracelet, it looks like it would feel weighty but really comfortable on your wrist, and I really like the colors very soothing

  2. Love the bracelet and the magnetic clasp. Cleaver...

    I have been doing lots of weeding in our Grass Valley yard. Looking good and so much fun to be outside. Now back in San Francisco for a week.

    Thanks for the nice postcard.
