So, uhm, yeah. A new craft! When Maggie from MI visited, it got me fired up about the beads again.
This one, I made a Byzantine chain, (scroll down, for some reason here is a blank space on that page), then wrapped the beads and added them. Pretty pleased with t. Makes a nice jangly sound.
This one is called an Egyptian chain, directions from Instructables.
Very fun. Best of all, the whole stash takes only one yarn tub, including tools. I am actually remembering to wear some jewelry now that I am making it. ( What little I have of good jewelry is in a safe deposit box, so I never really wear it, but I do visit it sometimes at the bank! )
