Casserole Bracelet?


What if I call this the “Casserole Bracelet?”… because it is put together using a variety of leftover, extraneous beads that I just had on hand?

😆 The name kind of amuses me. Thoughts? #casserole #bracelet #CasseroleBracelet

What you need to duplicate it: Memory wire, loop tool, beads, design board, half an hour.



Have you made something silimar with your leftover beads? Show me, please! Drop a link to your site in my comment section or tag/message me on Pinterest

Sacred Adornment!
😊💎💚💙💜💎😊
You may remember another memory wire bracelet (sacred adornment) that I completed recently. I discussed how it mentally/emotionally transports me to another space/vibe. See the other bracelet, here: https://whatamberloves.com/2015/08/14/sacred-adornment-quartz-memory-wire-bracelet/

While this bracelet is similar in many ways, it takes me in a completely different direction than the previous bracelet.

Mind you, while I was crafting this bracelet, physically I was in my own living room trying to tune out whatever noisy show the husband was watching on TV. Holding these stones, focusing on their spectrum of colors, and mentally flipping through the racks of clothes in my closet assembling an outfit to wear with the bracelet, I was completely enveloped in other spaces … other rooms in my mind, if you will. The full resolution photos of the rooms and/or links to their original publication sources can be found on my Pinterest board, “Rooms that Inspire Me” the link: https://www.pinterest.com/amberhh/rooms-that-inspire-me/

Woo Pig Sooie! Razorbacks! #wps

Woo Pig Sooie! Razorbacks! #wps

So, I’m a fan. Wooooo PIG Soooooooie!! We call the hogs!

I was born to parents that were college students at the University of Arkansas. Both graduated as Razorbacks. Even though I graduated from U.A.L.R., I’ll always be a Razorback fan. How could I not; after all, half of the baby and toddler photos of me are of me wearing Razorback gear. Really. 🙂

Now, as my oldest daughter is in middle school, uniform code allows her to wear collegiate apparel on Fridays. She has lots of Razorback T-shirts and hoodies, so we decided to make some Hog accessories! Cute, right? LOVE!

We bought artisan glass lampwork beads at Argenta Bead Company and online via eBay. She arranged them onto a bead design board, then she threaded them with memory wire; I added the clasp for her! I don’t mind spending a bit extra for these neat glass beads, since we’ll both make good use of the accessories. Her: at school on Fridays; me: on Saturdays watching the game. Love.

Enough with talking, here are the photos: (click on photos to enlarge them)
