Well I bought my bracelt from George a little while ago, and I've been collecting and making beads since - I finally now got the "look" as I want it and feel comfortable with ........



All the lampies are mine (apart from the blue and ivory - which I got in the swap last year - thanks Ingrid!).

So I've shown you mine ........... lets see yours!

Get you - so talented in lots of crafts!! It must be so satifying to be able to put so much of it together yourself!
Can't wait to see the finished result!

I so love all these BHB they are beautiful. I love the fact that you've either made them yourself or swapped them with others and that you can change the beadies depending on what you are wearing. 

I've tried loads and loads to make a decent one and failed miserably - they either come out massive (encasing gone wrong) or totally uneven or wonky.  I'd put it down to the big mandrel, but have now bought some of Manda's new skinny handled mandrels and although a bit better, they're still pants so it must just be me  Cry PPP eh? I think I need to watch someone do it (fingers crossed for a flame off demo?).  I will also have a go making a disk too - thanks for that one. 

They are beautiful though!

Have you tried the 4mm ones - they're easier than 5mm ones (and although not ideal for coring - a good place to start!)

When I say not ideal for coring - they can be cored, but it would make them tight to fit on many bracelets!

Here's the bracelet chain I soldered up, with two different "flavours" of beads - please note not all of these beads are made by myself, there are several swap beads in there, and I think one or two of manda's as well  Smiley I do apologise for the poor photo quality, it was a quick job! but you get the picture, it's nice to be able to change the beads according to the outfit  Smiley

Hi Trudi,
I haven't tried 4mm ones, but then I guess I do want them to go on a standard chain so I dunno.  I think I just need to keep at it. Thanks though!

These bracelets are lovely  Smiley
I don't wear mine any more as I just shoved all my BHB's on in a kind of colour order and it looks a bit of a mess. I must drag it out and arrange it properly. Thanks for the shove ladies  Grin
