B B B B Bracelets!

Isn't it funny, when I'm dedicating myself to making things for Hearsay all I want to do is write, and when I'm dedicating myself to writing all I want to do is make things.

My word count for NaNoWriMo is currently around 34500 which is roughly 2000 words behind today's goal. This is partly because I have been sneaking away from the laptop every so often to make bracelets. That's right bracelets. A sector of the jewellery realm that Hearsay was yet to discover... until now.

Here's some previews of what I've been working on.

These  natural cotton rope and gold platted chain bracelets will be for sale at the Bleeding Heart markets on Ann street in Brisbane City, they'll also be available online soon at either Madeit or Etsy.

These two are still in the production stage, I'm not too sure about the one on the left and the one on the right is made with beautiful white wooden beads I bought in Sydney and now have to figure out if they're available to buy online or mail order.

This one I really quite like, though I made it a bit big for myself. Unfortunately the recycled silk thread I made it from (bought in Byron, made in Nepal) is easily broken. That may not be the case with the multiple threads and the wrapping, but I just don't trust it to hold up under the stresses of everyday life.

Last but not least, something a little different. Four strands of black cord and silver plated findings this bracelet is a little more elegant and classic than the others, it will also be at Bleeding Heart and online in the coming weeks.

I'm also working on a semi-top secret fringe bracelet. I finished the prototype today but the photo's I took don't do it justice, so I'm hiding it away until further notice.
