Up-Town Cat

A whole week's gone by and all we have to show for it is this one little bracelet. To be fair, we were sick for most of the time and we don't do 'sick' very well. It's because we have so little practice being sick and we're always so surprised and affronted when it happens.

Up-Town Cat


Up-Town Cat is the bracelet that we had started last Wednesday for the WIP on the Needle and Thread Network. We just knew it would be fabulous but what we didn't know was that it would take a few twists and turns on its way.



The focal disk beads are very cunning....beige brown with black yet sort of green, sort of turquoise. The turquoise beads we added last week got discarded in the end, in favour of a more mossy green look.

And the Czechoslovakian cat bead for the closure?
Black glass with gold painted details. Very cool.

Linking up to the Needle and Thread Network.
Go have a look at what other Canadian craftspeople are up to.

~Stay well!

  7. I would follow you in the making of bracelets and beading, but I have so many ideas in my head, so I content myself with checking your blog in hopes that you show your lovely beadwork and COOKIES, which I also don't do... You fulfil a need that I can satisfy without actually doing! hahahaha!
