Beaded Bracelets!

I guess I've been neglecting this blog for a while. I haven't really done much that I felt like sharing. I do something creative every day, but a lot of times, it's just a tiny bit of a whole project or a doodle or something like that. When I finish my current art journal, I plan to do a flip through video. I only have 12 pages left that are in various states of completion. I'm not sure how long it will take to finish the journal; I tend to do just a layer or one section of a page at a time.

Anyway, today I felt like doing something different. I haven't made any beaded jewelry in years but I made two bracelets today. The blue one is just some beads on stretchy cord- nothing fancy. The one with green beads was made by following this tutorial. Mine came out a little wonky, but it is the first time I've tried this technique. I used hemp instead of waxed linen cord, as that is what I happened to have on hand. I haven't bought any new beading supplies in quite a while. I think they came out pretty well, considering I spent less than 30 minutes total making them.
