Spring is in the air - Bracelet - Live

I've been longing so much to sit in my studio for the last few days. I haven't set my foot in here since last week. Instead I've been playing around and experimenting with macrame knotting, inspired by a post on Maneki's blog (Kristina Johansson).

A parcel arrived the other day. With stuff I purchased from Jubilee about a week earlier. 4 different beads/pendants it was, (plus a few extra goodies, thank you soooo much!). I just loooove what I got from Jubilee. And I can't wait to use them all as soon as possible. Had to start today with this one with the word "Live" on it.

Took me a little while to find the combo I ended up using. I started off with beading wire, lime green and silver colors. Naaa, wasn't happy with how it looked. I am glad I am one who keeps struggling when I am not pleased with what I got before me.

Live - stoneware raku bead by Jubilee.
Teal and cream facetted Fire Agate, 8mm.
Teal waxed cotton cord.
Plastic vintage button.

All my best,

I've just been to the urban dictionary :-) . It's great to get to learn new words like that. Funny I couldn't figure it out myself. I said out load a few times ... didn't make the connection.

Thank you for appreciating!

Haha! Yes, I had to say it aloud too :-) I love the colours. I have never bought anything from Jubilee but I am tempted seeing this cool bead....I am glad that you strive for things to be exactly how you want them to be. It is a great quality. Your know that your jewellery will always end up exactly how you want it to! That's a good feeling. I don't know if I always strive for such high standards and I SHOULD!

Roligt att höra att något av mina små tips kunde vara till inspiration för dig.

Snyggt armband! Gillar färgen på agatpärlorna -- tror aldrig jag sett just den spännande färgkombon IRL -- och hur du plockade upp färgen i bomullstråden. Fokalpärlan är också fin, gillar formen och det informella "typsnittet". Nice!

That is a lovely bracelet! I love how you made that closure!

That's a great bracelet, Malin! I just made one w/ fire agate, too, but compared to yours, mine is ugly!!
