Look what you did...!

It's been less than a week since I posted my first tutorial and yet everyday I've seen a new variation or adaptation that one of you has made - and I love them all! I'm absolutely gobsmacked at the response and delighted that so many of you either have or want to give it a go. I'm certainly itching to have another go and mix it up a bit and it's only an arms length 'to do' list that is stopping me as I know once I do I will be lost - this thing is addictive! 

If you haven't tried it yet, just take a look at these lovely creations - they'll whet your appetite...

5, 6 & 7  Meridy Michelbrink - Two Trees Studio

And on the subject of bracelets, I received these in the post yesterday from my friend Cilla in Canada. We've never met but Cilla won my first blog giveaway last year and since then we've become 'cyber friend's' as Cilla puts it. We decided to swap friendship bracelets and these are what Cilla made for me - aren't they pretty? I especially love the flower design and will be having a go at that myself soon.

Thanks Cyber Cilla - I love my gift!

You can see what I sent Cilla here.

Happy beading all and keep those photos coming.



  1. It's a fabulous tutorial, Lesley. The finished design is really appealing, but it's easy enough for anyone to do. Winning combination!!!

  2. I haven't made it yet, but it is on my to do list, as I have a graduation gift to make that I think it will be perfect for. I too, love the flower bracelet, and look forward to seeing the process on it as well. Thanks so much for the tute!

  3. I agree with Sherri! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely tute! I will be making more of these! Thank you Lesley!
