Winter Watermelon



Nah....not the fruit. It's way too cold in the Kingdom for watermelon today. But this bracelet makes us think of watermelon. Pretty coral red and bright green. Not our usual palette but then, again, our usual palette is shades of grey....pencil, that is. The beads and the bracelets and the COOKIES! They all let us play with colour.


This is the first bracelet we've made without the loop and button/bead closure. We've been playing with wire work and we made this little clasp with copper wire. We really like how it turned out.


Imagine our surprise. This clasp seems pretty secure. You have to squeeze the 2 loops together in order for the second ring to slip out of the hook. Very cool. And total luck. 

~ Wishing you a lucky day!
PS.....Monika reminded us that although beaded micro macramé isn't quilting or knitting, it is still done with thread so Grandma Coco is thrilled to link up to the Needle and Thread Network for the Work in Progress Wednesday post.

  3. So pretty - and I love the top photo where it's draped on gold. That really makes it look extra opulent. Do you have a 14k gold outfit to wear this with? :) I am off to check out the Needle & Thread Network to see what everyone has been up to!

  6. Hi there! I found your blog through Mary Ann (4 comments up) posting about the Needle and Thread Network on a British based weekly blog called What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - phew..!!
    Anyhow, I love that bracelet you've made, it looks so complex (I wouldn't know where to start!) but it is really beautiful, very ornate!
    Kind regards,
