My First!!!!!

A dear friend of mine and his wife are expecting their first baby together and I wanted to make something special for them.  So I went shopping and instead of just gift wrapping their present I decided to give a try to making a diaper cake - well it is MY First!  so hope you like it

May Arts - Back to The Beach! Jewelry

 I wanted to make some jewelry using some of the ribbons from May Arts . Here are two bracelets I came up with today. Hope you like them. 

here I used some of beadalon memory wire and some german wire -
1. strung the ribbon on the memory wire along with some pearls until all the wire was covered with ribbon and pearls.
2. used two open end crimps at the ends of the wire and ribbon using my pliers I closed the crimps.
3. took some of the german wire 20 g. and strung some pearls at the end a shell and turned them into dangles added to the crimps - one on each end of the wire, bracelet done and ready to wear.
