Beads and more beads

I've had a bracelet and a pin that needed repair.  I was able to repair them last night, and while I was at it I decided to work or start work on a couple of beading projects.

I received a bracelet, handed down from one of my aunts the other day.  It was made of agate beads and small gold beads.  It had been stretched out over the years and needed to be restrung.  When I was in local craft store, I found swarvorzki crystal beads that I thought would look good with the agate beads.   I restrung the bracelet with crystal and agate beads alternating.  The original clasp was no longer functioning properly, so I added magnetic clasps.

I had a few beads left over and made this.  I haven't decided if I will add it to my key chain or crochet a ribbon to it and use it as a book mark.

I have also had these purple beads for some time and bought the leaf pendant to go with them.  Needless to say the pendant and beads have sat in a container waiting for me to do something with them.  So I started on them last night.   I still have beads left and think I will have enough beads left over to make a matching bracelet.

That's the beading side of my life.  I plan to try to finish up the necklace tomorrow and start on a small quilt.

Here's wishing you a wonderful weekend!
