A Crafty Christmas!

As I said before, this Christmas everyone is getting a crafty gift. For my best friend’s mum and aunt I have made jewellery. These are my first pieces intended for other people so I was a little scared when I began. It was also the first time I had used crimp beads and beading wire.
I don’t have any clasps with me on the ship so I decided to use a large bead and make a loop from smaller beads to close it. I then used a beading board to arrange my pattern – very handy! I made the cream version first and liked it so much I made the blue version. I hope they like them as much as I do!!

Don’t worry, my family members are also getting crafty gifts – I’m making them photos books ;-)
