Issue 35 (May/Jun 2011) Bracelets Issue

Welcome friends to issue #35
      As we become busy enjoying the warmer weather it's nice to have a few quick to finish projects for gifts. Bracelets are the perfect choice! I had fun playing with herringbone and pearls, daughter Michelle linked speckled clay beads with sparkling crystals! Linda Gettings has created a delightful twisting design. Celebrate May Day with Ronit Florence's May Faeries with earrings to match! Elizabeth Ann Scarborough shares an adorable yellow paisley bird also with earrings! Ever wonder what to do with those uniquely shaped farfalle beads? Barb Nichols has the answer with her Iron Maiden Bracelet. Enjoy!
      Best wishes & full bead dishes, Deb Moffett-Hall - Editor
