Wrap It Up, I'll Take It

First, a want to send you all a HUGE, heartfelt ~* Thank You *~ for the love and support sent my way yesterday. I know there will never be a quick fix for the things that trouble Andrew and each day presents new challenges. I wouldn't trade him for the world, though, and we'll get to some place of balance (hopefully) someday.

But, today is a new day... with a fresh dusting of 5inches of snow... and it is time for some new bracelets!! I am going to need to leave myself plenty of time to clean my car off before heading to the Gallery Store this afternoon... it is very snowy out there.

I am super excited to share this new bracelet design!! I am calling it a "Wrapper" bracelet. I was inspired by a bracelet Jennifer shared on her blog HERE. She mixed rubber tubing and her fabulous ceramic beads... I thought it would look great with wire and glass (isn't that always the way? wire and glass...). I was in JoAnn Fabrics and popped down the jewelry supplies aisle, which is something I rarely do. I grabbed some memory wire and gave it a whirl. I still need to tweak it a bit. I need to find a better balance to the beads. It seems heavy on one side to me, but so much fun to wear!! As usual... the picture really doesn't do it justice. The colors are so much more vibrant and rich in person.

(Santa, please bring me a new camera for Christmas!)

And... here a few others that are headed to the Gallery too.

"Spotted Elephants" ~ cool because it uses all colored wire. I haven't done an all color wire bracelet before. Usually, the color is accent. Gotta mix things up, ya know.

"Brace Yourself" B&W ~ Classic colors... I don't see myself getting bored with these anytime soon. I love how these feel.

Kerry, the bracelets are fantastic! My fave is the Spotted Elephant, but I also like the Wrapper, too.

Also, big hugs regarding yesterday's stuff....I can't imagine having the Santa talk with any of my kids yet, but it seems like you handled it very well. I've got nothing to offer in terms of wisdom, just hugs and cyber-support. Take care.
