First attempt at making Shamballa Bracelets

I was inspired to have a go at making these by the lovely Kath over at Crafts by Carolyn's forum. I love this style of jewellery but had no idea what these were called until Kath showed us some of her wonderful creations.

SO, last night I dusted off my small, unused and unloved bead box and tried my hand at making one. I will admit, these aren't my very first attempt...that was using an old bit of embroidery silk and some multi-coloured, plastic kiddies beads.....but the knotting was quite straight forward so this morning I sat in the conservatory (watching Chris cut the grass LOL) and beading to my little heart's content.

Since making these I have some how aquired a very long wish list of beads and thread! Oops!LOL

It's my offering of a challenge over at Carolyn's for the month of July so I may "see you again" shortly with my next crafty offerings!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oooh, those are splendid, Adele. I love them. Well done.

Wow - I never knew that you could make them using beads that are not the special 'shamballa' ones
