You might remember my bracelet saga…. I wrote about it here. The bracelet tell’s the life story of Jesus. I adore the bracelet and was so sad when mine broke.
This is what my original bracelet looked like…..
Sadly mine broke and I’ve been trying to replace it. I tried to find the original maker with no luck. After I wrote the post, one of my blog readers decided to replicate it….
This is blog reader Yolanda’s bracelet. She made more gifting them to her family for Christmas. I think they make an amazing gift.
I love her’s.
I still don’t have one together yet. I’ve collected beads. I’ve also learned (I’ve never bought beads before) that so many beads come in strings. That means that you can make several economically.
I’ve never put jewelry together though. I really don’t know how. I’m sure I could figure it out but I’m waiting….
I have my thyroid surgery on the 25th and our daughter Kayla is coming home that weekend while I am recuperating. I thought bracelet making might be a good activity for us….she can do it and I can consult. In the meantime I am going to get these packages all opened and sorted into an empty egg carton making sure I have all the beads I need. I’d hate to have a
victim jewelry maker to help me and not have the right beads.
I love Yolanda’s version and it makes me happy to see one together without the original beads. It looks really nice. Thanks so much for sharing your picture. It really gave me the motivation to know that the bracelet will still be beautiful without all the original beads.
Having the bracelet to look forward to is a good thing….hmmm…I wonder if there’s anything else I can think of to do while I’m recuperating and Kayla’s here…I know, I’m a bad mom suckering her into doing this for me- But I sure love her for putting up with me.
