Early Birthday gift...

When dear daughter was home in December and saw me working on a Kumihimo bracelet to give to a friend as a Christmas gift, she dropped a broad hint that she would like one as well. Since her birthday was approaching and I wasn't too flush with gift ideas, I figured a bracelet made while she was home for Spring Break would be a good idea, as I wouldn't have to mail it to her. So last week, I got busy and got this one finished. She wanted blue and I was lucky to strike my favourite bead shop, The Beadnik, just after she got in a good shipment of the top-drilled pearls so there were lots of color choices. You couldn't get much BLUE-er than this, could you!

I love making these bracelets. Choosing the beads and then seeing how they look as they are "woven" together is so much fun. I have another one underway... for me!! Stay tuned...
Piece,
Linda

Hello Linda..that's a really gorgeous bracelet. My niece's birthday is coming in August. Can you make a bracelet for her? In return, I'll send you some delicious edible birthday gift baskets, which you will love. :) These are made from delicious fresh fruits...
