Beading in the Studio...

Here is my design board for bracelets. It is a smaller version than the large one I use for necklace designs. As you can see I got this from my favorite online source Fire Mountain Gems. I have spent time in the studio today beading some bracelets for Valentine's holiday.
I had fun digging through my bead boxes for colors and combinations that looked good together. This is proof that you do not need to purchase special beads for every design. I managed to make three bracelets with beads I had in my stash. These could have been beads I had previously purchased or in many cases beads left over from other projects.

I think you might agree that these three bracelets have heart and clearly look good for Valentine's day celebrations.
I loved being in the studio and making these bracelets. They came together quite quickly and easily. Now I am ready for Valentine's.
I hope you are able to spend time in your art room this week and make happy art.
Happy creating...


  1. I love your beaded bracelets.
    I also love using crafting materials that are in the cupboard. I was able to do that with my Holiday card. Yipee.

    Have a nice restful evening!

  2. All your bracelets are lovely. They are perfect for wearing on Valentines day.
    I have been beading today as well. Although I have not been as productive as you : )

  3. Very pretty! I always wondered how those little gadgets work LOL! Great invention :D

  4. Hi Sherry! Your bracelets are all perfectly beautiful, with such lovely bead combinations...and not just for Valentine's Day, but for every day!!! xoxo Paulette

  6. So gorgeous and beautiful..wonderful...

  7. Happy art indeed - they are so cute! And how neat you could do them from your stash - that's what I am trying to do these days too! I have never seen that kind of design board (not a jewellery maker but I want to play - a little!) but it looks very handy. We are in the throes of winter here too and I am already longing for Spring. It is damp here and snowy and you get chilled to the bone and can't get warm. Thank heavens for kitties!

  8. Very, very nice for Valentine's Day! I like Fire Mountain, too!

  9. So pretty, love the coloring and also the styles you chose.. great job! ♥ Darlene

  11. So sweet and cheerful!! We need that for this time of year!

  12. Gorgeous bracelets, I have one of those bead boards and always forget to use it. End up with beads rolling all over my desk. LOL
