For weeks I have wanted to get my beads out, but every time I get a minute Darling is wide awake and ready to help me out. Yesterday, the urge to play got too much and I got my box of beads out and handed Darling a reel of elastic to play with.
I manage to string some bracelets together and re-thread some I had made earlier onto stronger elastic.
I have a whole bunch of these bracelets in different colours which I stack together in sets of two to six depending on my outfit.
I made the blue and grey ones below to add to the blue one with the silver charm which I bought. Of course I had to wear them to work the next day. I wore them with this grey scarf which I picked up at the Mercy Mission Sisters Conference last year and which has become one of my favourites. I wore a blue pin with the scarf to pick out the colour of the bracelets. The abaya is a new one as I ripped my other two. They seem to be getting longer and longer and catch under my feet and rip at the shoulders (luckily the seamstress repaired the other one too I gave her for the size).
I love the coolness and texture of these and I just love this colour combination.
Insh'Allah I want to make some sets for our online shop. I am thinking of making stacks of about five or six with charms and feature beads in most of the bracelets. I would love to hear peoples views. What colour combinations would you like to see?
