A Bracelet I made at BEADFEST! Lots of Beads, Buttons, and Charms!!!

 I took a class on the last day of BEADFEST which was a lot different for me.....give me some metal and I'm OK....but when I walked in (which the morning I over slept it must of been because we were catching some fun in Philly on South St. the night before) late.....Maria and the other students were gathering up their supplies. A little frantic from being late I apologized and began picking my colors, etc.....when I saw those seed beads (PANIC) OK what am I going to do with them....yeah I know I've used them in sewing and some jewelry but I was like oh no....seed beads......anyway Maria broke that fear! LOL!
 I was able to finish the bracelet a couple of nights at home in the evening after the boys went to sleep. I learned so much in Maria Richmond 's class. It was such a pleasure to have been in her class and meet a lovely lady from Germany, who had flown all the way to Philly just to take these classes.....now that's amazing!! What a wonderful person!
 I used some of my clay hearts, so much!
 The charm with the birdie is from lovely friend from Germany! I love it!
 Note all the buttons
 That awesome camera charm!!!!!
 Of course with all my work I add a number "9"
 The lights.....hence the name of her class Leave the Lights On!
Love the leaves, the faces, the lights. I had such an awesome time in the class and all the new techniques of beading's and buttoning (which I have always had a thing for buttons) LOL!
I hope you are having a great week...also don't forget to check out the ATC Sunday still going on.....

Happy Beading!!

What a fun bracelet! I love charm bracelets where the charms have meaning! That would have taken me DAYS- maybe even weeks - to finish! Sweet!

Thanks for sharing the photos and recipes - finally have a minute to check out your blog. Think I followed you on instagram but not sure yet - can't quite figure that program out yet. Keep up the great work!
