Christmas Gift Idea handmade jewlery

Hi there… back with my posting for Friday :-)
Today’s posting was inspired by Sharon’s challenge “Tags are Fun” see my posting from last night here.

Now Just Magnolia’s challenge for this week is “beads”. I have started to make some bracelets about 1 month ago – i always wanted to show you the photos. Anyhow… thought it would be a great way to make my bracelet actually look like the stings to attach the tag.


I have one really sweet girlfriend :-) not saying who it is… she loves red. She wore red high heels for her wedding and i know she wore last year for a Christmas party a really pretty red dress. So,  purchased for her the a while back those big red beads with a combination of silver swirl bead and sparkly black ones and made this bracelet for her to give for Christmas. I really hope she likes it.


Here is a close up shot from the coloring. For some reason my camera had a hard time focusing.


Supplies for the tag:
Tilda under Mistletoe
Postmark sentiment
Paper: Basic Grey “Jovial”
Ribbon: Stampin up (red Satin)
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Coloring: Copic
Supplies for bracelet: Michaels

    I would like to ask you about your shading. do you do all the lighter shades and then the darkest? I think I am blending the darkest shade to much.
